Immunity in kids

Hi All,   I am a mother to two daughters aged 9 & 4. While my older kid is healthy & well built in terms of height & weight my younger daughter is very skinny. She remains sick throughout the year since birth. A slight change in climate & she catched cold & cough that lasts for a good 10 days. she stops eating & losses weight. She is normally active but looks under aged. I really feel worried for her. Is there any immunity booster food/ supplement that I can give her? I have put her on homeopathy too but to no avail. My pediatrician says she will again immunity with age. I used to give Pedimune, a Merck product to my elder kid & was quite happy with the results. But this product is no longer sold in India. Can someone give some valuable suggestion to this worried mother:(

I usually give her the yelakki bananas. Her appetite for food is generally good. but inspite of that she doesn't put on weight & her constant cold n cough further makes her loose weight.

Give her banana on a daily basis... If you can get Kerala's banana (Nenthiram pazham), it helps put on weight and is a great source of energy

Also for cold and cough, best medicine I found is a teaspoon of honey with turmeric and pepper powder... these are natural remedies...

Nithya, she takes pediasure as per my docs advise. giving her nuts, i guess will be a good suggestion.

Give her honey and milk in the morning after brushing.... This might help her put on weight... Also, it gives her the energy she needs.. Try giving her nuts, may be, in a powder form (mix with milk).
