by Aug 13, 2018Children's Health

Don’t let this years back to school rush stress you out! We know that planning for September can commence as early as late July, early August. Feeling like you didn’t have time to get organized this year? Don’t fret, Dr. Erin’s got you covered! She put together a back to school must-have guide to help you fuel your little ones as they embark on their September adventures.

2HMF Fit for School

HMF Fit for School probiotic formula is a must-have when looking to support children’s immune systems. Not only does it have probiotics in each chewable tablet, but it also includes vitamin C and vitamin D to help reduce the incidence of upper respiratory tract infections (URTI). Children who took HMF Fit for School’s probiotic formula plus added vitamin C had 33% less incidence of URTI and 30% decrease in school absenteeism (PMID: 25205320).



Aromatherapy Diffuser

Nebulizers or ultrasonic diffusers are great options if you’re looking to cleanse the air and leave a room smelling fresh. The best part is you can add a few drops of straight essential oil depending on what you’re hoping to achieve. For example, adding a few drops of lavender oil can help relieve anxiety and stress by calming down the nervous system. Try eucalyptus for when you feel that cold coming on. Diffusers serve a purpose and look great. Why not try one out?


4Lavender Organic Hand Sanitizer
