Flu season is still lingering, and to help prevent the cold/flu, here are some tips to help boost your child’s immune system.
- An apple-a-day keeps the doctor away! Eat lots of colorful fruits and vegetables. Fruits and veggies contain antioxidants which help fight bad bacteria.
- Wash hands frequently, especially before eating.
- Stay well-hydrated. Drinking lots of water keeps the body hydrated. Your child can also try coconut water, and bone broth, however stay away from sugary sodas and juices.
- Get adequate sleep. Getting ample sleep increases the number of your white blood cells. On the other hand, loss of sleep even for a few hours at night, increases inflammation in our body. Make sure that your family is getting enough zzzz’s.
