Tip of the Week: Summer Injuries

This Week’s Featured Recipe

Summer is finally here! And with summer comes one of my least favorite things of all—bugs! As we were sitting at the dinner table the other night, I look over to see a giant bug bite on my 4-year-old’s leg. We soon found out that he had five mosquito bites, all the size of a nickel! As the days went on, his bites started to swell and irritate his skin even more. It got to the point where his sandals were very snug because of the swelling from the bite on his foot.

We love to grill and often eat dinner together out on the patio. My son loves to be outdoors swimming, running through the sprinkler, and going to the park. There are so many summer injuries to be aware of for our families. To prevent further issues, I stocked up on insect repellent, sunscreen, aloe, and Band-Aids. I want to make sure my family can relax and enjoy our time outdoors together without worrying about these issues. Plus, it will be an opportunity to teach him about bugs that are irritating, ones that help us, and ones that are fun, like lightning bugs!
