My baby keeps falling sick again and again. She doesn't seem to have any resistance to common cold. Could it be tonsillitis? Can I do anything food wise to boost her immunity?

Hi surabhi. My suggestion is take it one by one. First point is children below 3years are susceptible to cold and cough upto 7 times in a year. Point 2 please check if your rooms are well ventilated and dust free. This could cause constant allergic reactions which can lead to repeated illness. 3rd point is boosting immunity is done automatically when he recovers from the illness. They develop thro falling sick. From your side follow a balanced diet. Avoid suggery foods and sweets. They can aggravate the illness.

Hi Surabhi, Does she complain of sore throat, or a headache near the ears, temples, Or have you noticed any sort of swelling on her throat. These are generally the symptoms of tonsillitis. Otherwise you could get her checked for it. When it comes to boosting immunity, food is the best source. focus on giving her a variety--a little of everything everyday, some nuts, a few seeds, a couple of fruits (including something that is high in Vit C), vegetables, some protein item, a bit of carbs etc. You could also check with your doctor for supplements. Hope these help.
