Immunity has been one of the keywords. Good immunity means lower chances of getting infected. And even if one does get an infection, a strong immunity means a better & swifter recovery! Did you know? Getting exposed to bacteria and viruses from birth plays an important role in building up a toddler’s immune system. During winters, a toddler usually fights five to eight colds a year. This number may also increase once the child starts going to daycare or becomes a play schooler. (source : Stanford Children’s Health, San Francisco ). We tend to be very cautious when it comes to protecting our toddlers from harmful germs in and out of the house. Similarly, providing them with the right nutrition goes a long way in boosting a toddler’s immunity.
Let’s understand how nutrition is important for immunity.
The human body’s first line of defense includes the skin, the lining of the digestive tract, and mucus that restricts the entry of germs into the body. There are also special cells that have the ability to fight germs by directly attacking them, or by producing antibodies to fight off these germs.
Nutrition for Toddlers has ‘immuno-nutrients’ that fight infections and diseases. So, better the quality of nutrition, better is a toddler’s ability to fight off these infections. You can safeguard your toddler’s immunity by including certain foods and food groups in their daily meals. We will focus on this important aspect of improving immunity for toddlers in this Live workshop.
