Between school and work, and just every day shopping, colds and infections crop up everywhere, but we’ve got the tools to fight back this year. This year, Target has a great selection of Pfizer Pediatric health products and they sent us some to keep our house as sniffle free as possible, or to treat ones that creep in no matter what we try.

We try to keep as much colds and sicknesses away, they always seem to crop up. But we do what we can before we need to use medicines. Some of our best tips to fighting germs are:

  • Wash your hands often! I’m not a huge fan of hand sanitizer, but good ol’ soap and water works great for us!
  • Sneeze into your elbow. It might look a little weird, but it’s definitely better than having the germs on your hands and then touching other stuff.
  • Eat plenty of fruits and veggies, especially those with Vitamin C. I personally take more vitamin C in the form of pills, but it definitely helps.
  • Spicy foods – Of course this is one only if you and your kids like spicy food. But if we start to get a stuffed nose, grab some salsa. It helps clear your sinuses out!
  • Open the windows – Fresh air helps keep germs away. I’m not sure if that’s true or not actually, but for me it’s always been a great way to make you feel better.

But we all know that no matter what we try, sometimes colds and the crud still happen. That’s why this year Target has everything you need to fight back. If you’re not quiet sure what your child needs, Pfizer set up Sick Just Got Real, which offers a sickness tracker, sick hacks and a symptom check to match with the best products for your child and their age.

Ease those aches and pains, while reducing a child’s fever fast with Children’s Advil®, a great solution for kids as young as 2 and up to 11. Children’s Advil® comes in several great-tasting flavors, including: Sugar-free Dye-free Berry, Bubble Gum, Grape, Blue Raspberry, Fruit and Dye-Free White Grape flavors. There’s also Infants’ Advil® White Grape, which provides unsurpassed fever relief with a syringe for easy dosing for children 6-23 months.

Formulated just for kids, Children’s Robitussin® DM Day/Night Pack (Children’s Robitussin® Cough & Chest Congestion and Children’s Robitussin® Nighttime Cough) non-drowsy daytime formula helps break up chest congestion, while the long-acting nighttime formula relieves coughs and runny noses to help kids get the rest they need.

All in a great tasting grape flavor, Children’s Dimetapp® Cold & Cough tackles a child’s most bothersome stuffy and runny noses, all while working to relieve cough.

To keep us prepared Pfizer sent us and is giving one reader:

  • Infants’ and Children’s Advil® provide unsurpassed fever and pain relief(1) , and contain ibuprofen, the medicine pediatricians use most for their own kids’ fevers(2) (for ages 6 months -11 years)

  1. I give vitamins and try to keep them eating healthy. I also keep plenty of meds in the house and when they start, I start giving to them immediately so it doesn’t get bad

  2. My tip is to keep their fingers/finger nails out of mouth ! Wash hands all the time! Take shower/bath when coming home from school! Thank you!

  3. On my pediatrician’s advice, I try to stay away from things like hand sanitizers and excessive handwashing and I made sure the kids got plenty of time to play in the dirt and be around animals when they were little. I credit to this early, immune-system-building, controlled exposure to germs the fact that they’ve hardly had a day’s sickness since preschool, no allergies, etc.

  4. My biggest tip is to wash your hands every chance you can. Be especially careful to avoid germs! Great giveaway! Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  5. My biggest tip to staying healthy is to build up your immune system with healthy eating and exercise. It really helps you avoid colds.

  6. We wash our hands A LOT and wipe down door knobs, cupboard handles,counters, and railings, also taking a multi vitamin is good too.

  7. Washing your hands, germ-exing when out and keeping everything clean. These are straight from the Dr. since health problems mean we have to keep on top of anything that spreads colds/flus/viruses.
