Boosting Your Child's Immune System

When it comes to the little ones, as a parent it is very important for one to be aware of the different kinds of illnesses that are common in children. The most common illness in children are infections that include colds & flu, gastroenteritis, diarrhoea and sore throat & ears.

Most babies carry their mother’s immunity until they reach 2 to 3 months. And when they start going to places like the creche, they are prone to pick up other infections. But here are few tips to help boost your child’s immune system.

  • It is very important for kids to have 5 fruits and veggies per day. 
  • Make sure that your child drinks plenty of water daily. 
  • Playtime, particular outdoors, is important for your child's health. 
  • Children need 10 to 11 hours of good sleep every night. 
  • Immune boosters, vitamins and supplements can also  help boost a child’s immune system. 

Thanks to paediatrician, Dr Hanneke Heyns for these tips.
