The following ideas will get you on your way to keep child healthy and away from illnesses at school:

  1. Regular Hand WashingHealthy Habits For children to Boost their Immunity Children should wash their hands with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds before and after meals and any time they get dirty or greasy.

  2. Balanced Diet Plan meals and snacks with a variety of fresh produce, whole grains, lean meats, eggs, and other healthy proteins, such as nuts. Steer clear of additives, preservatives, sugar, and foods that cause allergic reactions, as inflammation makes it much harder for the body to fight off bacteria and viruses.

  6. Limited Exposure to Secondhand Smoke If you and/or your spouse smoke, then do so outside of the house as much as possible to limit your child’s exposure to secondhand smoke.

  7. Antioxidants Antioxidants free radicals in the body while killing off foreign invaders and boosting the immune system. Consider cranberries, blueberries, pomegranates, mangosteen, acai berries, and green tea.
