Healthy Back to School Beverages
September 6, 2022
New textbooks are waiting to be cracked open, binders are filled with crisp sheets of paper and excitement is in the air. Back to school season is in full swing and teachers, parents and students alike are busy making sure this school year starts on the right note.
Amidst the lesson plans and school supply shopping lists, it can be easy to overlook the importance of planning for back to school wellness. While classrooms are places of learning, they are also places where students can easily pick up germs and transfer illnesses.
Whether your student is in elementary, middle or high school, preparation is key to helping them stay healthy at school this fall — and all the way to next summer break.
Getting current on all vaccines, educating about proper hand washing and teaching healthy hygiene habits are the foundations of back to school wellness. After covering these basics, supporting your child’s natural immunity is one of the best ways to help them ward off colds, flus and other illnesses.
Eating a balanced diet, staying hydrated, getting plenty of sleep, regular movement and managing stress are at the center of immune health.
When used in tandem with a healthy overall lifestyle, immune-boosting beverages and other supplements are another great way to support the body’s natural defenses.*
Support Back to School Health with Immunity Single Sips®
The Republic of Tea’s innovative Single Sips® make it easy to enjoy the benefits of healthy, organic herbs on the go. Simply add a packet to a bottle of water and shake.
Your kids can choose between the delicious flavors of ripe berries and sweet–tart hibiscus, or juicy oranges and sweet nectarines — all while getting their daily dose of immune–boosting vitamin C.* They will love the bright fruity flavors, and you will love knowing that they are supporting their immune health sip by sip.
The latest additions to this collection of premium single–serve packets include Immunity Elderberry Punch and Immunity Nectarine Honey Orangeade. Both blends are naturally caffeine–free, high in vitamin C and formulated with organic superfoods for immune health, making them ideal for sipping this back to school season.
Organic black elderberry powder is the star of Immunity Elderberry Punch. This small, tart berry is rich in antioxidants, and has been used by traditional healers for centuries to ease winter colds, coughs and congestion.* Today elderberry remains one of the most popular holistic cold remedies, which may be attributed to its high concentration of vitamin C.*
Meanwhile, Immunity Nectarine Honey Orangeade features a sunny blend of orange, nectarine, lime, honey, turmeric, ginger and other natural ingredients and flavors. Citrus fruits such as oranges are a natural source of vitamin C, while turmeric and ginger are highly regarded for their antioxidant, anti–inflammatory properties.*
Swap out sugary sodas and artificial juice drinks for these healthful beverages, which can be enjoyed by the entire family. Single Sips packets are conveniently sized for packing into a lunchbox or tucking into a backpack pocket. They can also be mixed into smoothies, yogurt bowls or oatmeal for a healthful pick-me-up anytime of the day.
