Immunity – Have you started building it in your kids yet?
It is said that you are what you eat. Rather, what you eat today will shape how you live tomorrow. There is an indelible truth in every word of this statement. Immunity is perhaps the key factor that decides your health. Rains are over. Now it’s winter & thus your child becomes more susceptible to diseases and infections. Wherever you go, you watch your kids play in the playground alongside kids with runny noses or with severe coughs, or maybe with conjunctivitis too.
You watch helplessly as those same fingers go into their mouths or the nose, and there it is- the perfect inlet for the germs and eventually infections. As a parent, you have 2 choices –
1) Become over-cautious. Do not let the children play out considering risk to hygiene factors.
2) Let them play for a brief while and ensure they immediately have a good bath before resuming to studies, eating and ensure you are building immunity to protect them from the possibility of an infection.
