Influenza activity remains elevated in the United States for the week of January 20th-26th according to CDC reporting.  The proportion of deaths attributed to pneumonia and influenza are above the epidemic threshold.  This is a serious concern for parents whose students are in Campus housing at Georgetown University.  Influenza activity continues to be widespread.

Parents of college students are rightfully concerned about the risks on the college campus.   The situation at Georgetown University is a valid concern.

As parents, what can we do to protect our children when they are living on campus?  There are simple suggestions that can help us keep our students healthy during this deadly flu season.  A few changes like adding a daily multi-vitamin, eating lots of fruits and vegetables and washing hands regularly will help. 

Georgetown University Students have a rigorous class schedule and don’t have time to focus on eating a balanced diet with an emphasis on fruits and vegetables high in antioxidants.  That is why I made the choice to send my child to college with XO Healthy Chocolate products.  Eating just 3 of these yummy Belgian Chocolate squares have the antioxidant value similar to eating up to 8 servings of fruit and vegetables a day.  Even better, these chocolate power squares are only 33 calories each  since they do not have the waxes, fillers like candy chocolate.

You can protect your Georgetown student by helping them increase antioxidants which can strengthen the immune system. Order your Georgetown University Care package for Valentine’s Day.  This current Valentine’s Day special deal is valid through February 14th and is a XO variety pack of Nuggets, Power Squares, Omega Squares and Xobiotic.  This combination will easily last a month eating 3 pieces a day.
