Tips for Parents to Preserve Their Child’s Lungs from Smog

As air pollution worsens in Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, and other North Indian states after Diwali, a doctor suggests tips for parents to preserve their kids’ lungs from smog. Here are some recommendations:

  1. Mask Usage: Make your kids habitual to wear a mask when traveling outdoors, especially in areas highly prone to air pollution due to vehicles or industries.
  2. Hand Hygiene: Encourage children to wash their hands frequently, especially after outdoor play, to reduce the risk of ingesting pollutants.
  3. Reduce Outdoor Playtime: On days when air quality is poor, reduce outdoor playtime, especially during peak pollution hours. Encourage indoor activities instead.
  4. Healthy Diet: A diet rich in antioxidants and vitamins can help protect your child’s lungs. Encourage them to eat fruits and vegetables.
  5. Special Attention for Respiratory Issues: Give additional attention to children with respiratory issues such as Asthma and Cystic Fibrosis. Stay informed about the air quality in your area using real-time updates on apps or news.
  6. Home Environment: Close windows and doors when outdoor air quality is low to prevent pollutants from entering your home. Invest in high-quality air purifiers for your home, especially in your child’s bedroom. Ensure they are effective at filtering out pollutants and allergens.
  7. Regular Check-ups: Schedule regular check-ups with your child’s pediatrician to monitor their lung health and discuss any concerns.

By following these tips, parents can take steps to safeguard their children from the adverse effects of air pollution, particularly during periods of heightened smog after Diwali.
