Preparing Your Child For School Reopening
Back To School Concerns
For any parent, sending their child off to school is always a stressful experience. There is the anxiety of your child’s safety and well-being, as well as how they would adapt to a new environment. Then also comes the worry and occasional guilt of not being there for them, especially in this testing time of their young lives.
When schools, kindergarten and nursery homes reopen, parents have even more reasons for concern with the Covid-19 pandemic still ongoing. The school environment can easily be a hotbed for virus transmission, with large numbers of non-fully vaccinated children grouped together in a closed space for long periods of time.
How Safe Are Our Kids?
How Safe Are Our Kids?
At the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, it appeared the disease did not infect too many children. Hence, some misconceptions began to arise that children were more ‘immune’. However this has now been proven wrong, as evidenced by several cases of outbreaks in schools over the past year.
According to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report, children and teenagers aged 10 – 19 years old are found capable of spreading the virus at the same rate as adults. Similar to other countries, the number of Covid-19 cases among Malaysian children and teenagers has shown a great surge compared to at the beginning of the outbreak.
Despite the potential risk of infection from Covid-19 and other illnesses, there are steps you can take to keep your little ones safe in order to resume normal daily life after pandemic. External measures such as keeping their mask on and a safe distance from others at all times definitely help, but do not neglect the more important aspect – building up their immunity from inside.
Every day, we breathe in anywhere between 100,000 to 1 million invisible microorganisms. Some of these invaders can be harmful, but thankfully our body’s immune system is a highly efficient safeguard against a multitude of potential threats. A little boost for your child’s immunity goes a long way in keeping them healthy as much as possible!

However, not all probiotics are created equal. Some strains are able to be absorbed better by the body without compromising on their efficacy, such as Bifidobacterium Lactis Bl-04®.

To Prepare For A Safe
‘Back To School’ Routine
To Prepare For A Safe ‘Back To School’ Routine
Teach them that it’s not enough to just wash their hands with soap and water, but rinse thoroughly for about 20 seconds. A fun guide for children is to hum or sing ‘Happy Birthday’ or ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ as they wash.
Choose 3-ply masks that offer greater protection. Even if fabric masks are used, it is advisable to still put on a 3-ply mask inside. It’s also good to pack one or two extra masks in their bag, in case the one they’re wearing breaks or falls.
Unfortunately, the present pandemic situation means that playing and interacting with friends will have to be readjusted for now. Educate your child on the importance of physical distancing, and explore safe ways to build social skills.
Prepare healthy and nutritious meals for your kid, right at home and even to bring to school. A balanced serving of vegetables and fruits does wonders for boosting immunity, keeping their body in tip-top condition to ward off viruses. Additionally, let them take supplements such as vitamin C and probiotics to boost immunity.
Set a routine
After an extended period of being stuck at home, your children might have difficulty readjusting to the routine of school life. Help them smoothly transition by practising a normal schooling schedule a week before – waking up, eating and going to bed at the right hours.
