Before the virus and bacteria season starts, prepare yourself and your kids. Here are some tips to protect and strengthen the immunity of the youngest, which can certainly be applied on the whole family.
Children sometimes forget in a hurry to wash their hands. Remind them of the importance of washing hands before every meal and every time after using the toilet. However keep in mind that it is not useful to exaggerate with washing hands, because then this measure could have a negative impact on immunity.
Put blueberries in the morning cereals
It is a simple step that can mean a big difference, so do not underestimate the power of this fruit. Blueberries are powerful antioxidant, and their effect on immunity is stronger than most other fruits and vegetables.
Reduce your intake of processed carbohydrates and sugars
When it comes to strengthening the natural immunity, avoiding negative things is the same as adding some positive products. Processed carbohydrates and sugars feed the bad bacteria in the intestine and contribute to inflammation. So limit your intake of pasta, bread, cakes and juices.
Move and exercise as much as possible
Encourage children to take part in team sports. If your child is not for that kind of sport, take some time every day and spend it in active play with the child. Several studies have confirmed that exercise strengthens the immune system.
