Eat your way to a healthy immune system: Kid friendly herbs
Immune support is a big topic in our clinic in the fall. “What can I do to keep my whole family healthy as the weather turns and the kids go back to school?” Below are my best two tips for the family’s immune support. Yumm! And enjoy your healthy family.
Step 1: Clean your hands often! This is the best protection against catching and spreading illness. Wash before you eat and before touching your eyes, nose or mouth either soap and water or a hand sanitizer after touching anything that a sick person has touched (such as dishes, towels, clothes, and trash). Teach kids to wash well and rub their hands with soap and water for at least 15 seconds (long enough to sing a song).
Step 2: Immune boosting with food. Try incorporating one or more of these nutrient packed foods into your family’s meals. These are safe for kids and for pregnant or nursing women.
