Also, in the school bag should be located disinfection wipes, so that the child may clean up a shared surface i.e., the desk or chair, as well as the disinfection wet gel when it's not easy washing the hands. And, of course, it'll need to follow the rules of social distance and avoid overcrowding, the frequent washing of hands, and avoiding sharing personal items with its classmates! 


Whilst these are the products of the pandemic, there is a range of pharmaceutical products that are useful to be in the schoolbag, as precautionary measures: 


Pocket size Sunscreen: The sunrays are still strong so it would be safe to preserve the summer's routine of regular sunscreen application. Buy a pocket-size product and remind the child to use it during the school breaks! 


After-bite stick: Mosquitoes, bees, and all kinds of insects are still active at this time of the year so, for your peace of mind, get an after-bite stick that will relieve the child from possible stings. 


Anti-lice lotion: Speaking about your peace of mind, don't overlook the use of anti-lice lotion, to protect the child from lice! Spray the child's head before going to school, and train it to be sprayed by itself, during the school day, at least once, to keep away the enemy! 


Healthy snacks: we all know that kids love treats (which are usually unhealthy) and the school canteens are full of these! Therefore, do not forget, to supply your kid with a healthy homemade snack, such as cereal bars, organic crackers, fruit, etc., to avoid, as far as possible, getting unneeded calories. 


Flask: Buy a small flask, so that the child can drink clean water from its bottle and not from the school's water coolers. At the same time, you will enhance the kid's eco-consciousness!

Last but not least, thoroughly check the school bag you'll buy, to protect the child from back pain or potential injuries caused by the extreme weight. Experts suggest a backpack with two handles that are passed on to the child’s shoulders. It is recommended that the student makes use of all the pockets of the bag so that the weight gets distributed everywhere. Finally, the weight of the bag (with full content) should not exceed 20% of the body weight of the child, to avoid pains in the back.
