Kids are prone to fall sick because their immune systems are not developed that well. When they come in contact with other kids in day care or school who have cold or flue, they too catch the germs and bacteria and come home with a runny nose and a sore throat.
What should you do to prevent your kids from falling sick?
Try these tips to keep your child healthy
Build up your child’s immune system. If their immune system is strong, it would shield them against sicknesses and diseases.
To boost your child’s immune system, make her eat healthy food. Make sure that she eats fresh fruits, vegetables, and dairy products. Prepare food that is rich in nutritional value to help your child grow strong and healthy.
Teach your child the importance of proper hygiene. Instruct them to wash their hands whenever they come home from outside and before eating their meals. Teach them the importance of keeping themselves clean and hygienic. Make sure that they take bath everyday and brush their teeth twice daily.
Sleep plays a very crucial role in keeping one healthy and fit. Your child must get adequate sleep for at least 8 hours every day.
Encourage your child to exercise and stay active. Exercising improves blood circulation, and helps germs and bacteria to flush out of the body. Sweating also helps in removing harmful toxins from the body.
Cut down on sugar intake of your child. Do not allow her to eat too much of candies, cakes, pies, and puddings as sugar impairs the immune system and make one vulnerable to diseases and infections.
