Everyone knows that as soon as your child goes to school, they seem to come into contact with every single bug there is! One of the best important ways to guard those annoying colds and flu symptoms is to make sure your child’s immune system is working efficiently. While you can’t shield your child from every single bug around, there are some top tips you can follow to help them fight off as many as possible.
Whether we like it or not, colds and coughs are part of growing up
When the kids go back to school or the cold weather arrives, the inevitable sneezes and snuffles arrive too. Of course, colds can strike at any time of year. Perhaps your child has been overdoing it or is feeling run down. There are hundreds of cold viruses out there and it is normal for children to get at least 8 colds a year.
Your child’s immune system is their first line of defense against infection. The stronger it is, the better it can deal with colds and coughs.
Of course, you can’t expect your child to avoid colds altogether. But you can help keep them strong and healthy by ensuring they have the nutrients they need to fight those nasty bugs and bounce back to health.
