Keeping College Kids Healthy

It’s rock and roll and back to school time for college kids.

You can feel the flurry of purchasing.

You can feel the excitement and anticipation.

I have two in college this year.

From a parent perspective, when I think of college I think of parties, germs; especially in those icky dorm showers.  I think of poor quality eating – can you say iceberg lettuce? Not to mention the likelihood of weight gain,stress and illness.

With parents often miles away – what can we do?

I suggest we encourage healthy living and prevention.

I’s also have you consider spending your consumer dollars with a conscientious company.

I personally will do all I can to encourage and support any college student who wants to be vibrant, healthy and alert for school.

( please ask me about my college student 50% shipping offer!)

My daughter by choice, not by insistence on my part, is taking much of what the list below suggests. Her brother when he left for school had his list too, and years later he is particular about the products he cleans with or puts on his body. I am grateful for their positive attitudes and their exampling to others. It could have been a time of breaking away that included choosing their own brands and yet they remain loyal to how they were raised.  I think that’s cool.

Who do you know who’s going to college who might want to take on their health and well being?
