As the months get colder and more people surrounding yourself and your children start getting sick, it is important to give them the best chance to fight against those nasty winter bugs.
Keep them full of immune boosting vitamins with colourful fruit and vegies as part of their regular diet and staying rugged up during the cool days. Good nutrition is essential to developing and keeping the immune system healthy and strong. Nutrients can be obtained from an organic wholefoods diet consisting of fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans, and whole grains. You may want to consider probiotic supplementation if your child is constantly getting sick. Probiotics are the beneficial bacteria in the intestinal tract that keep the “bad” bacteria from taking over. Winter shouldn’t be a time to stop being active either. Exercising is a great way to maintain physical and mental health, keeping your immune system functioning its best as well.
If you or your child need a boost to help keep the sniffles at bay, speak to your local pharmacist or GP about what options may be suitable for the whole family.
