Tip of the Week: How to Keep Students Healthy During the Winter #JTAchievesTogether 
It is flu season and the flu is now widespread across the country. A great way to keep students healthy this winter is to slightly adjust their diets, decrease their sugar intake, and to make sleep a priority. Adjust students diets by incorporating food packed with Vitamin C. Meeting the daily recommendation for Vitamin C is essential in a healthy immune system. Also try incorporating immune boosting foods and herbal teas. Learn more about the flu: https://www.cdc.gov/flu/
