Target Helps You Stay Healthy and Well This Flu Season – Giveaway

by Jennifer Sikora

 

The other day I went to the doctor to get my yearly checkup and I noticed that the waiting room was full of people who were sick and had caught some kind of virus. I cringed and immediately reached for my bottle of sanitizer because I do not like to get sick! As a mom, when I get sick the household gets really chaotic (how many of you moms feel that way) and I truly do not get to rest that much, so I must do my best to stay well!

I’m glad to say that thanks to Target, I can spearhead those nasty viruses floating in the air and do my best to stay healthy and well — especially during this time of the year when the flu and stomach bug are so widely spread. Once again, Target is hosting a huge giveaway basket featuring some of their best products to help you and me and all the other mothers out get healthy and hopefully stay healthy!

So, what’s included in the giveaway basket?

Up & Up Hand Sanitizer: up and up™ Hand Sanitizer kills 99.99% of germs that can make you sick. This convenient alternative to soap is effective without water and can kill germs anytime, anywhere throughout the day. The vitamin E and moisturizer leaves hands feeling
smooth while protecting you from common germs.

 

 

 

 

Up & Up Zinc and Vitamin C Supplements: up & up™ Zinc and Vitamin C Supplements help support immune system and antioxidant health, which is vital for the body to stay strong and healthy. Increasing Vitamin C and Zinc intake will help keep your body strong and increase its ability to fight off common colds.

 

 

 

Aloe Tissues: While using tissues is necessary during cold and flu season, they often leave your nose and skin feeling irritated. Aloe Tissues are soft and smooth on the skin, so reaching for tissues all winter long will not be painful.

 

 

 

 

Lysol Anti-Bacterial Wipes: Lysol® Anti-Bacterial Wipes kill cold and flu viruses that can be found anywhere in your home. Simply cleaning surfaces in your car, at work or at home with the disinfecting wipes will make a huge difference in helping to stop the spread of germs.

 

 

 

 

Archer Farms Freeze Dried Fruit: Archer Farms Simply Balanced Freeze Dried Fruit is a convenient alternative to fresh fruit. Keeping a supply of the Freeze Dried Fruit on hand is an easy way to ensure you are getting enough nutrients to ward off sickness. The wide variety of Simply Balanced Freeze Dried Fruit is available year-round, as they are always in season.

 

 

 

 

Archer Farms Pure Green Tea: Drinking Archer Farms Pure Green Tea is recommended to support your overall health. The high concentration of antioxidants found in green tea can help reduce your risk of a wide range of diseases, including simple bacterial and viral infections.
Archer Farms green tea is organic and Fair Trade Certified to ensure that you are getting the maximum amount of disease-fighting antioxidants possible.

 

 

 

Up & Up Throat Lozenges: up & up™ Throat Lozenges provide quick cough and sore throat relief. The throat lozenges temporarily stop coughs that can cause throat and mouth irritation during the cold and flu season.

 

 

 

 

Target is dedicated to providing convenient and affordable products, services and expert advice to help moms stay well and meet their new year’s resolutions. You can talk to a pharmacist, receive a flu vaccine, shop for workout apparel such as the C9 by Champion gear, and stock up on all of their well-being essentials, all in one store. Additionally, Target’s expanded fresh food options and its Archer Farms Simply Balanced brand make it easier– and tastier – for all of us moms to choose better-for-you meals, snacks and beverages.

Enter to Win

One 5 Minutes for Mom reader is going to win this huge health and wellness giveaway basket! To enter, leave a comment letting us know your best tip for staying healthy during the cold and flu season.

# hand wash, hand wash and then hand wash some more. #3, never touch your face, ever, for any reason – my dd always washes her hands right before she eats as well as soon as she gets in the house (we all do this) #4 my youngests fav, raw honey and lemon (the real fruit here not concentrate) in hot water, she loves this!

This year the weather is fluctuating so wildly that my best advice is to dress warmly, even when the weather’s warming up. Letting your guard down and going around without a coat, mittens, whatever, might not pay off if you catch a bug. I also think eating lots of Vitamin C (or drinking it) can’t be a bad idea.
