health & wellbeing Traditional Cold Remedies After years of fobbing them off as old wives' tales, scientists have discovered that some of the traditional old fashioned cold remedies actually do work. Hot fruit drinks and chicken soup are just two of Granny's old-fashioned remedies that have been proven effective in the fight against colds and flu.

again with her tip that garlic was good for fighting colds. Research has shown that garlic is an antioxidant and can shorten the life of a cold. Also, Allicin, an ingredient found in garlic, is a decongestant that will help clear your blocked nose and sinuses.

Hot Fruit Drinks

A Hot Toddy

Experts at Cardiff University's Common Cold Centre have proved that a steaming mug of hot fruit cordial helps to reduce symptoms of a cold. Sipping the hot fruity drink increases air flow through the nose, making it easier to breathe, and raises body temperature, making you feel immediately better. Lemon or citrus flavours are best and the drink should be drunk piping hot or at room temperature.

This one might have come from Grandpa rather than Grandma, but whoever advised you to slip a couple of drops of whiskey into your hot honey and lemon drink was talking sense. Small amounts of alcohol (we're talking whiskey or brandy here not Smirnoff Ice or cider) can have an anti-inflammatory effect on mucous membranes and can help reduce a fever. A dash of alcohol in a hot drink before bed can also aid restful sleep.

Chicken Soup Chicken soup contains a number of ingredients that help to ease infections of the upper respiratory tract; in other words a blocked up nose and a sore throat. A good hot chicken soup made with chicken, onions, sweet potato, parsnips, turnips and salt and pepper, calms inflamed throats, breaks up mucus and creates airway secretions, making it easier to breathe.

Garlic Although her advice to crush it in a glass of milk may have been a little extreme, Grandma was right

parenting... There are many things you can do to help your child settle in and feel more confident at a new school. Starting a new school can be both exciting and very daunting for children of all ages but, as a parent, there are many things you can do to make the transition a little easer. • Talking to your child about the changes they are facing, will help them share any concerns or worries they may have. • Ask if there is anything they are unsure or worried about • Do a trial run of the journey to school • Help your child prepare by getting everything (uniform, stationery, money, etc) ready the night before • Keep a copy of the timetable where it can be easily seen; as a reminder for days when certain books, or PE kit, are needed • Take an interest in what they are learning and help them • Take an interest in new friends they are making • Encourage them to take part in after-school clubs and activities – they can help your child learn new things in a fun way and increase the overall motivation to learn. They will also be meeting lots of new friends through their new activities, which will help them settle in easier. • Make a note of key school events on a wall planner or calendar, for example school productions, parents' evenings, sport days.

To find out more about the school you can: • Attend school events. • Attend Parents’ Evenings Introductory events and induction evenings are designed to let you meet teachers and see the environment your child will be learning in. If you cannot attend these sessions or your child is starting a new school mid term, contact the school and ask if you can go along at another time.
