  • CDC helps family travelers stay healthy

    2010-04-14

    Most parents of small children spend an inordinately large portion of their day worrying about their children's safety and well-being. Compound this concern with the unfamiliarity that comes with international travel, and a family vacation can go from fun to stressful in moments. Fortunately for anxious adults eager to avoid ailments in their adolescent offspring, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provide a number of helpful tips that can keep a family vacation fun, safe and healthy.

    The plane is the first spot where trouble can arise, so parents are recommended to supply pacifiers, earplugs or gum to children to allow them to rest on the flight without the discomfort of having their ears constantly popping.

    Parents with small children will definitely want to spend at least a few moments at the beginning of their hotel stay examining their room and assessing any threats for curious children. Making note of exposed plugs, sharp corners or a shaky balcony railing can help establish a safe area for children to play and sleep while staying abroad.

    Any parent would also be wise to pack antibacterial soap and sunscreen while staying abroad to prevent both infections from dirty hands and sunburn on bare shoulders.
