I can’t believe we’re all in the madness of back to school season already – didn’t summer just begin? Since we can’t avoid it, may as well make the most of it and ready our kids (and ourselves) the best we can. With everything that comes with the return to school, I love putting together a Back to School Preparedness Basket so there’s no last-minute rushes should something come up!
What’s great about this school preparedness basket is that it can be a gift – to a neighbor or friend with a kiddo starting school for the first time, to a teacher for their class. Or you can just keep it for yourself so your family is ready for whatever may happen.

If you’re a new student parent, you may be like ‘wait, what can happen?’ At school the kids are around a ton of others, so there’s not just a much higher chance of spreading germs for getting sick, but also major worries such as lice. Something as simple as a hug, or backpacks touching, or sharing hats or dress ups – all of those can spread lice around, so your child’s chances of getting it in a group setting, like school, makes the chance of them getting it increase immensely.
That’s why I put Nix Ultra® Super Lice Treatment from Walmart in our school preparedness kit – because IF that happens, I want to be prepared! I feel I can trust this brand more because it’s the #1 Pediatrician recommended brand, and it kills lice and eggs – even if it’s the resistant “super” lice. If my kids get it, I want to be sure that stuff is GONE!

One thing I’ve learned with lice – the school doesn’t always report if there’s been a case in a class until multiple have – yikes! You can check yourself if there’s been lice cases reported in your area with this handy lice tracker, and if you need help you can use this lice ID tool.
Having dealt with everything from catching flu, cold, strep and – sadly – lice, more than once, I’ve learned to be ready for about anything. I guess with 5 kids at school, it’s impossible to avoid forever! At least I’m prepared with Nix Ultra® Super Lice Treatment which is pesticide free, non-toxic and has an easy application. As a mom, I also appreciate that it’s tough on lice, but gentle on skin. Want to
