Being a parent, you would never want to see your child attacked by recurrent infections. Being more exposed to the environment, children are more prone to the infections of the respiratory and the digestive tract.
Immune system is the defense mechanism of our body. It defends against the intrusion and multiplication of disease causing germs; thereby it helps in fighting against infections. The defense mechanism in children is not fully mature, it develops with age. And therefore, due to low immunity, children catch infections often. With rising temperatures in summers, the environment is also not favoring good health.
Some of the commonest diseases children are prone to in summer are:
- Viral infection
We have enlisted certain ways and healthy habits which will strengthen your child’s immune system and cut the risk of infections.
- Adequate rest
- Include vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and lean proteins in your children’s diet.
- Give them carrots, green beans, oranges, strawberries; these foods possess immune-boosting properties.
Yogurt is a rich source of probiotics- also known as the good bacteria. One study has shown that, children who had yogurt drink, had 19% reduced risk of colds, and infections.
Walnuts are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids. These omega-3s in walnuts are known to reduce the respiratory infections in kids.
Give children a balanced diet, consisting of fruits, vegetables etc.
With ever increasing competition, parents want their kids to excel in everything, thereby making their kids overburdened. Summertime, generally a vacation time, is now turning into an extracurricular activity time. Parents are forcing their kids to attend various activity classes, which gives them no time to play or even relax. These activities, do not allow your kids to take a nap, or relax, and they become fatigued. All this over burden makes them more prone to various illnesses and infections. For a healthy immune system, children need a good sound sleep of 10 to 12 hours.
