Without any doubt, children have to encounter a wide range of germs every day, and protecting them from infections is your prime duty as a parent. In simple words, falling sick is directly mentioned in the job description of a kid, and it is the only skill that attracts HR (Germs), and your child has to pay the price.

So, how can you keep germs away from your child’s life, and how to improve their immune system? As the covid scare has again started increasing, it is now the right time as a parent to learn new ways to improve your child’s immune system effectively. 

So, here we go!

1: Bring more vegetables and fruits into your child’s overall diet

When germs are knocking on the door on your Child’s Mental Health, you have to keenly focus on vegetables and fruits and try to bring them into your child’s diet. Some of the best fruits and vegetables which you can inculcate within your child’s diet include,

  •  Carrots,
  • Green beans,
  • Oranges, and
  • Strawberries. 

You can also focus on phytonutrients as they can help your child’s immunity to fight against infections and harmful pathogens that can help them in blocking viruses and bacteria. 

2: Improve their sleep time

Adults who lack sleep may be more vulnerable to sickness because they have fewer natural killer cells, and immune system defenses targeting bacteria and cancer cells. The same problem is also common for children, as research has proven that children who don’t have the right sleep schedule are more likely to fall sick compared to those who follow the right sleep schedule. 

Daycare children are especially vulnerable to sleep deprivation because of how challenging it may be for them to take naps due to all the activity. Check the nap schedule at your kid's daycare again, and if necessary, put your child to bed early to make sure they receive enough rest.

3: Exercising is important

According to recent research, exercising is quite important for kids as well as for adults to remove the risk of falling sick regularly. If you want your children to get into the lifelong habit of fitness, then you will need to start it yourself. Being a role model for your children is one of the best ways to improve their overall health and make them understand the significance of staying fit in their daily lives. There is also no need for a heavy workout. Basic yoga or also family jogging, or walking is more than enough for your child to understand the value of exercise. 

4: Reducing stress

Stress impairs our health and increases our susceptibility to illness. Ensure that children have access to cheerful people and activities and free time to play (or whatever version of the pandemic allows). The best thing you can do is spend some quality time with your kids and also act as their friend to get to know about what is going inside their brain and they will also express if there is something you need to worry.. Immunity might suffer in today's fast-paced society when parents are frequently stressed and kids are frequently overscheduled. Children should have enough downtime, opportunities for imaginative play, and relaxation periods. For busy bodies' immune systems to function optimally, they occasionally need to rest.

At the same time, if you feel that your Child’s Health is not improving despite trying all the hacks mentioned in the blog, then you can visit our hospital to consult with doctors who can help you find the right remedy for your child.
