Tips for a Healthy & Happy 4th of July from LaVida to You!

With the 4th of July just a few days away, chances are you are making your plans to celebrate our country’s birthday. Whether you are heading to the beach, your backyard to gather with family and friends or a community/neighborhood party there are a few tips to keep in mind to make sure your 4th of July celebration is a healthy and happy one.

Beach and Pool Safety

It goes without saying that it is extremely important to keep a very close eye on children when they are swimming or playing in any body of water, in fact, a sober adult should be in the water with them, especially if you are in the ocean or a lake. Not all children are strong swimmers and they should be close to an adult at all times.

Sunscreen – Make sure you apply sunscreen, that applies to you as well as your children. Use the maximum recommend SPF for the correct age. Also, be sure to reapply the sunscreen every few hours, even if it is waterproof. You don’t want to spend the 5th of July in agony from a nasty sunburn.


If a cook-out is the plan, make sure the food is cooked to the correct temperature and properly stored. Use disposable items to avoid contamination, and don't keep anything raw out in the heat.

Most Importantly, Have Fun!

The 4th of July is a great day to make memories and have fun, make sure you stay healthy and safe while making those memories!
