Health Tips for Kids to prevent from Asthma

HealthNFitness Tips: When the weather heats up and ozone infiltrates the air, kids with asthma should limit their time outside.

HealthNFitness Tips for the parents of asthmatic children when the air quality is poor:

  • Run the air conditioner, and don't let your child spend too much time outside.
  • If your kids participate in outdoor activities, limit them to the early morning hours and away from high-traffic areas.
  • Talk to your child's sports coach about practicing in an indoor, air conditioned environment on very hot days. Send your child to practice with a rescue inhaler, just in case.
  • Ensure that your home is well-ventilated, use an air purifier and avoid wood-burning fires inside the home.
  • Discuss your child's asthma action plan with the pediatrician.

  1. Asthma takes away a lot from your child. He wouldn't be able to do a lot of things especially engaging in physical activities and the outdoors, and that says a lot in the developing years of a child. We wouldn't want our child to miss all the fun of the outside while growing up, so it's best follow tips like these.

  2. I agree with you Oskar. It’s really hard for your children to have asthma. It keeps them from doing the things that really fascinate them and things that you know they would enjoy. It’s more difficult especially when these activities will support child’s growth development.

  3. No one wants to see their child suffer from illness. This is why parents do their best for their children to grow well. If there is something that they can do to give their children some comfort, they would probably go for it. :))
