4. Get your family active for 1-hour a day

The suggested amount of daily activity for 5- to 17-year-olds is at least 60 minutes. Try home workouts or going on walks during non-peak hours while keeping physical distance.

5. Promote naps during the day and let them get plenty of sleep at night

Sleep deprivation can lead to a more vulnerable immune system.
