You have had this over and over again and I will say it again; prevention is better than cure. This issue will focus on ways that children can remain healthy. But the challenge is sticking to these healthy habits daily. 

Eating well and exercising is what you know as obvious, but children still play games in unsafe areas. They play on the road, in dirty water when it rains and in a lot of mud. These places are dangerous especially on the roads where there are many speeding cars.

There is another problem that is bothering Rwandans today, it’s called ‘Swine flu.’ If you have heard about it, you will understand why it’s important to stay in a clean place and also keep your body clean.

A clean environment will protect you from infectious diseases that come from dirty places. If you have never heard of swine flu, read on.

It’s time for all children to learn how to always wash their hands after playing and before meals. All people including children have the responsibility to look after their bodies. Being a contagious disease, swine flu will not segregate between young children and adults.

This means that extreme safety is needed to protect our health.

You need to eat a balanced diet that includes plenty of fruits which protects your body from catching a cold. Children need to also drink a lot of water to cleanse your bodies.

If you do this daily, you will enjoy your lives because you are healthy. Stay safe, play safe and love safety.
