Is it time for your child to start making breakfast?When are your kids old enough to make their own breakfast? There's no one-size-fits-all with breakfast preparation, but responsibility can vary by age range. A four-year old child could put prepared and measured ingredients into a very simple recipe. No knives, no electricity, no stoves or ovens. Yogurt parfaits are perfect for your child to mix with ingredients from containers. Older children can take more responsibility, using the microwave or stove with supervision. Cultivate independence and self-confidence by allowing them to make breakfast at the right level for their age and ability. Listen as Dr. Suanne Kowal-Connelly joins Melanie Cole, MS to discuss kids making breakfast.

Who Should Worry About RSV, Flu and Coronavirus
Should you worry about these viruses?RSV, influenza and coronaviruses are not uncommon, especially in children. Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a form of the common cold. It occurs frequently in children. It's most dangerous in babies. Flu affects many people, which is why it's important to get the flu vaccine. The current strain of coronavirus is not as prevalent as the flu. The CDC is tracking and reporting on the coronavirus. As boring as it sounds, the easiest defense is to wash your hands. Wash off respiratory droplets that may have been expelled. Listen as Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson joins Melanie Cole, MS to discuss who is at risk for RSV, flu and coronavirus.
