Get Ready for Back-to-School with Seventh Generation (Review/Giveaway)

One (1) lucky Goodies for Mom reader will win a Seventh Generation "Back-to-School" kit courtesy of Seventh Generation.

The winner receive the following great eco-friendly products from Seventh Generation:

  • Seventh Generation backpack
  • two canisters of Seventh Generation disinfecting wipes (one for home and one to donate to your child´s classroom),
  • disinfecting multi-surface spray cleaner,
  • facial tissue and
  • paper towels
We at Goodies for Mom always love receiving products to use from Seventh Generation because they work hard to protect our environment and our homes. Our favorite is the disinfecting multi-surface spray cleaner. It really brings a shine to your surfaces and cleans even tough dried up spills, which we have a lot of at our house. The disinfecting wipes will be greatly appreciated by your child's teacher since as we all know it seems like children are germ magnets.

With nearly 22 million school days lost each year due to the common cold and flu (CDC) and as many as 2.7 million bacterial found per square inch on common school surfaces (NSF International), it´s no wonder that 82 percent of parents with kids in grades K-5 fret about the germs in their children´s classrooms (according to a survey conducted by Seventh Generation).

This school year, Seventh Generation is sharing tips from best-selling author and pediatrician, Dr. Alan Greene, to help parents protect their child´s health during back-to-school season. Dr. Greene suggests taking the following precautions:

Optimize the immune system

  • Reap the benefits of probiotics like those found in yogurt. A recent study showed that children who received enough probiotics daily throughout the cold and flu season had a significant reduction in the number of illnesses they had and, when they did get sick, the symptoms were both milder and didn't last as long.
  • Be sure your child is getting plenty of vitamin D from the sun, from food, or from a supplement.
  • Build a strong foundation. Good food, good sleep, and good physical activity all help the immune system to flourish.
  • Be wise about reducing unnecessary exposure to harmful germs
  • Teach children the key times to clean their hands in the classroom. The most important times include after sneezing, coughing or using the restroom, upon leaving "high-risk" places (recess, naptime, play stations) and before meals or snacks.

I'd love to try out the carpet cleaner. My 8 month old is crawling around on it all day and I never really thought about the chemicals we use to clean it until I see him faceplant on it and lick it all the time (he's 8 months old, give him a break). Thanks.
