It can be difficult to keep your kids in a routine during the summer, especially when it comes to health. Going back to school is a great time to revisit your family’s health habits and prepare your kids for the classroom environment.

Good Habits
While many busy parents look to takeout or filler foods when life gets hectic, it’s important to plan your child’s meals with nutrition in mind.

For those parents with picky eaters—don’t give up. Keep introducing new foods until you find something that works. Remember that nutrition is the foundation for your child’s mental and physical health, and poor diet can lead to poor grades in school and serious issues down the road.

Another important and often overlooked health habit is sleep. It’s just as important as diet and exercise for performance and overall mood. The average child needs eight to 10 hours of uninterrupted shut-eye, and many get much less. For a good night’s rest, have children turn off electronic devices at least an hour before bedtime and encourage them to read instead of watching TV.

Tasty Meds
In addition to good habits, many children greatly benefit from prescription medication and natural supplements. But getting them to take their meds can be, well, difficult.

At JJ’s Prescription Specialties, our experts can turn yucky prescriptions into tasty gummies, lollipops, drinks and even gels. This process of compounding medication in-house will ensure that your child gets the right dosage and strength for his or her unique needs. To learn more call JJ’s at 337-562-7979.

Carlos Dubus is one of three pharmacists at JJ’s Prescription Specialties, and he brings 53 years of pharmaceutical experience to the team. He has a Bachelor’s Degree in Pharmacy and is a member of the American Pharmacists Association.

So what exactly is compounding? In short, compounding is the process of preparing personalized medications for patients. It entails mixing individual ingredients together to a patient’s exact strength and dosage specifications.

Before mass-produced medication, nearly all prescriptions were compounded. Now most pharmacists aren’t even trained to compound, meaning many patients with non-traditional needs are falling through the cracks.

That’s where JJ’s Prescription Specialties comes in. We can customize medication to meet virtually any need, right here in the Lake Area.

Too often, patients lose money when they look to out-of-state providers for compounding. These patients may pay upwards of $40 for shipping and handling costs for quality compounding services, when they could be getting the same service down the road at JJ’s.

Give our team a call at 337-562-7979 to find out how we can help save you money and energy on compounded products.
