The key to a healthy child is a strong immune system through a HEALTHY MEAL PLAN.
When functioning properly, the immune system fights disease producing organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. All children are continuously exposed to these pathogens, but exposure does not mean a child will get sick. A strong immune system provides a child with powerful natural defences against disease. Conversely, a child with a weakened immune system is vulnerable or more susceptible to colds, flu, and more serious illnesses.
It is virtually impossible to germproof your child. Germs are abundant everywhere, especially in situations such as day-care or preschool. Being exposed to germs is a part of life, and not necessarily unfavourable. Exposure to different viruses and bacteria can actually strengthen a child’s immune system. Furthermore, acquiring innocuous childhood diseases such as chicken pox, measles, mumps and rubella can help to build immunity and give your child lifetime protection against these diseases. Lifetime immunity is important since these diseases can have serious negative effects if acquired as an adult.
If your child is overly susceptible to illness, you may want to take steps to enhance his or her immune system and make it as strong as possible.
Prevention is the way to avoid subjecting your child to continuing cycles of antibiotics or other medications. The powerful tools of prevention WHICH include PROPER NUTRITION THROUGH A HEALTHY MEAL PLAN.
Good nutrition is essential to developing and keeping the immune system healthy and strong. This however won’t be achievable without a healthy meal plan which makes it easy.
