With the season change
to the colder months (and it’ll happen again when the warm weather returns!), kids
often come home with a cough or a case of the sniffles. Here’s how you can treat
their symptoms naturally.
Why do kids get coughs and colds at every
change of season?
As summer comes to an
end and fall settles in, your little one
risks getting a cough or a cold. But newsflash:
These change-of-season illnesses are extremely common and are not due, as we
tend to believe, to a change in temperature.
Headaches, runny nose,
sore throats…these ailments are the result of viruses. Among these viruses, two are particularly
responsible for symptoms often see in kiddos:
the rhinovirus and coronavirus.
During the transition
to back to school (which is already an energy strain for many children), extra-curricular
activities start up again—this means tired kids, with the potential for weakened
immune systems. They are also back in the classroom, and that close proximity presents
the opportunity for germ-sharing. Add in shorter days, and
the lack of sunlight and you’re looking at prime conditions for sickness.

Coughs and colds generally disappear within a couple of days. However, they are still unpleasant, frustrating for the patient and contagious! While coughs and colds are pretty much unavoidable, here’s how you can help to keep them at bay:
