Immunity Helps Growth
Ensuring complete nutrition for their children is a universal concern for all mothers. While a well-balanced and nutritious meal that includes essential nutrients is theoretically easy to plan, practically children often manage to avoid nutritious foods and somehow find a way of laying their hands on ‘junk’ food instead. Experts agree that for optimal health and cognitive development in children, proper growth needs to go hand in hand with strong immunity. The link is often stronger than we imagine.
Right Nutrition and Immunity
Your child’s growth needs and rapidly developing cognitive skills calls for right nutrient intake. In this competitive world, mothers can no more take a back seat and let things happen as they do. As mothers you have to be mindful that for your child eating food should not just be about satisfying hunger, but should be a means to build a strong immune system, maximize growth and ensure outstanding performance in all spheres of life.
Factors affecting immunity
It’s that time of the year once again when the weather is changing, bringing in its wake a slew of infections, caused by the return to action of germs of various hues. And those most susceptible to this change of weather are children. A strong immune system is the key to your child being able to fight recurring seasonal infections caused by viruses, bacteria (pathogens) and free radicals, say health experts.
