Raising healthy children sounds simple.
Good nutrition and exercise protects kids from obesity, diabetes and a host of chronic diseases, but the real key to a healthy child is a strong immune system.
The immune system fights bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites every day and although your child will be exposed to these pathogens, a strong immune system is their most powerful natural defense.
Always start with good balanced nutrition. Nutritional and vitamin deficiencies often make your child’s immune system vulnerable to colds, flu and serious illnesses. Many vitamins and minerals necessary for a healthy immune system are found in an organic diet filled with fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans and whole grains. Add an easy to take children’s multi-vitamin, and supplement these with probiotics, the most efficient way to boost the immune system.
Remember, homeopathic medicines, prebiotic and probiotics supplements are ideal for children and are extremely effective in providing your child with a powerful immune system.
