Spring

Healthy kids are full of vim and vigor. When they don't feel well, there are telltale physical signs. Do you know what they are?

- Eyes: A child should have clear and bright eyes. If their eyes are unfocused or dazed, it indicates a deficiency.  

- Skin: If a child’s skin is pallid and swallow, or too fair, it indicates poor gastrointestinal function, possibly dyspepsia or anemia.

- Hair: If a child’s hair is dry and dull, coarse and wiry, it indicates a possible blood deficiency or imbalanced diet.  

- Ears: A child’s ears should be round and full; hard ears may indicate deficiency in kidney function (called kidney-qi in traditional Chinese medicine).

- Finger pulps: Just like adults, if finger pulps are too thin or flat, it indicates an inefficiency of vital energy, called cold-wetness in TCM. A healthy child should have moderately fat and flexible pulps.

- Bluish tendons: If blue veins are visible in the back of the nose, this indicates dyspepsia and an inefficiency of vital energy and blood.

- Sleep: healthy children can fall asleep fast and sleep tight with slow and soft breaths; if a child has trouble sleeping, restless sleep, tosses and turns, or snores loudly during sleep, they may suffer from inefficiency of vital energy.

- Exercise: exercise can work up a healthy kid's appetite; however, kids who are reluctant to eat after exercise may have inefficiency of vital energy and blood.

- Hands: healthy children always have warm hands; cold hands all day may indicate inefficiency of vital energy.

Our school nurses care for students through daily morning and afternoon checks during which they carefully observe students’ faces and throats and whether they are high or low spirited; they also check skin and hands for rashes and help students wash their hands. Your campus nurse will report any anomalies to you immediately and if necessary, and after consultation, students may be taken to hospital accompanied by our staff for further treatment.

Summer

In the hot summer, children are prone to get sick because they do not yet have fully developed immunity to many things that we adults do. It’s up to us to be observant. We should pay special attention to four things to keep our kids healthy during the summer.

Bland diets are not always the best choice. Some parents think it’s better for kids to eat bland and light food during hot summer. But the truth is that kids need well-balanced nutrition. Food that is overly bland may lead to nutrition deficiencies. It’s a better idea to diversify their food choices to include fish, pork, eggs, and liver. Porridge is a great delivery vehicle for nutrition and easily digested.

Limit types of drinks. Beverages such as juice and soda contain way too much sugar, which adversely affects kids' appetites and digestion. Excessive sugar intake may also lead to obesity. Therefore, during the summer, concentrate on drinking lots of plain old H2O.

Limit the amount of cold foods. Summer is the season for fresh fruits and melons. and parents may sometimes cook some cold dishes. But too much cold food can impact digestion and trigger tummy aches and  and diarrhea.

Don’t take cold baths after sweating. In summer, kids often come back inside covered in sweat. If they jump into a cool bath, the pores immediately close and veins contract. This leads to disruption in bodily functions. Stick to warm showers as a better choice.



Autumn

Autumn is the season of harvest when all things begin to wither. As we consume so much nutrition during summer, this is the time we need to acclimate and adjust ourselves for winter. This is a period of transition from being active and highly energetic to being a bit quieter and more focused.

In autumn, parents need to pay special attention to clothes, food, accommodation and types of sports.

Clothes: due to daily temperature swings, kids need an extra layer of clothing in the morning and evening. For active kids who easily perspire, we can put a towel on his or her back, or have them change their clothing after exercise. Kids also need to wear sturdy sneakers. Before outdoor activities, prepare proper clothes for your kids according to the weather and always bring an extra layer of thin or thick clothing for changes in temperature.

Food: Kids get better appetite in the autumn as temperatures gradually fall. This is a good time for pork, beans, vegetables, fruits and dairy. Food rich in vitamins, especially A and C, are excellent choices as these bolster the immune system, along with garlic, turnips, ginger and Chinese chives. Kids need to keep drinking more water or water blended with turnips or ginger. If you have a child prone to coughing, try cook soup with pears. s

At home: despite the cool weather, open the windows and let fresh air in throughout the day; wash and air-out quilts to keep them fresh.

Sports: autumn is a great season for outdoor activities. Parents and kids should enjoy lots of outdoor time and absorb the sunshine, which facilitates calcium absorption and strengthens immune systems. Apart from outdoor activities, kids can take some cool baths deliberately as a form of exercise. But they should start taking cool baths only around  September. Children may start with washing their hands and face with cool water around this time of year. In the beginning, the water temperature should be close to body temperature then can be gradually adjusted from 35℃ to 28℃.




Winter

Kids are most prone to illness during the cold winter. Consider the following tips courtesy of TCM:


Strengthen the spleen and stomach.

According to traditional Chinese medicine, children's spleens and stomachs are not mature enough, meaning they can be damaged during wet and hot summers when kids take in excessive cold foods. You may notice lack of appetite, diarrhea, or other signs. Therefore, it's important for parents to strengthen kids' spleen and stomach during the autumn and winter. Give them foods that aid digestion such as yams, lotus nut, and haricot. If necessary, kids can take medicines containing Chinese herbs under the guidance of a doctor. We should make sure our kids eat a variety of foods to maintain a balanced diet and cooked in nutrient-containing ways such as steaming or stewing, instead of frying or roasting. Food should be light and mild and kids should eat more vegetables to protect their respiratory tract and gastric mucosa from being attacked by virus and bacteria. Binge eating should always be avoided and kids should eat the proper amount of from each food category each day.
