3 Ways to Improve Your Child’s Immunity in Preparation of the New School Year

Back-to-school immunity is not just about taking preventive measures; it’s about being proactive about your child’s health and preparing their immune system to take on a new (-ish) threat, COVID-19, until they make a decision on what vaccine to go for and when.

Here are the nutritional supplements and habits your child needs to adopt.

1. No Naps; Only Slumber

The more naps your kid takes, the less sleep they’re likely to get. Sleep deprivation is directly linked to higher stress levels, but it’s also known to wreak havoc on a child’s immune system. Like every bodily function, the immune system needs energy to fuel its tasks, which can only be conserved when they sleep the night before.

We suggest you establish a strict curfew and make sure your little ones adhere to it by limiting their gaming and Netflix hours and curtailing sugar and caffeine consumption to keep the hyperactivity to a minimum.

2. Vitamin D

No matter how much sleep your child gets, their body would only save the energy that you supply it. Speaking of, when was the last time you saw your kid venturing outside, playing soccer, and soaking in all that natural vitamin D?

Vitamin D helps stave off infections by boosting the immune system. To make up for the lack of sun, fill them up on plenty of eggs, fish, and liquid multivitamins.

3. Vitamin C

While we’re on the subject of vitamins, let’s talk about vitamin C. It boosts immunity by protecting your cells and is widely found in citrus fruits, strawberries, and plenty of greens.
