How To Help Build Your Child's Immunity

Sep 23, 2022by Gabby - F&F

A good immune system will essentially help fight off unwanted viruses. That's why it's extremely important to build up a good immunity from a young age. 

Building immunity, stems from things like, a healthy diet, regular exercise, getting enough sleep and a number of other ways that we will take you through in this blog. But, one of the hardest challenges seen in young children, is that they are fussy eaters, so feeding them their greens isn't as easy as you may think.

Here at F&F, we stock two amazing superfoods for kids (or miracle workers as we like to call them), from Nutra Organics. These superfoods allow you to sneak all the nutrients and goods your child needs in their food or drinks, to help build their immunity — let's take a look!

Other Ways To Help Build Your Child's Immunity 

If you have an angel child who loves to eat their fruits and veggies and all things in between, here's what's recommended: berries, citrus fruits, green leafy vegetables, root vegetables, mushrooms and yogurt.

If you're able to breastfeed, aim to do so fo the first 2-3 months, if you can go for 6 months - even better. Breast milk contains turbo-charged immunity-enhancing antibodies and white blood cells, which is amazing for your babies health.

It's also super important your child gets enough sleep and gets their daily movement in. It's important to teach them good hygiene practices, such as washing hands with soap, before eating, after going to the bathroom and after sneezing, blowing their nose and coughing — to reduce germ spread.

We hope you enjoy these amazing alternatives and tips to help build your child's immunity! You can shop the Berry Immune and Veggie Hero online now at F&F!
