Children are prone to regular bouts of cold, flu and infections, all year round. As mothers, one of our constant worries is, how can we increase their immunity and decrease their chances of falling ill?
Well, we have the answer! Add these six veggies to their daily diet to instantly boost their immune system, and make them stronger to fight germs and infections.
This superfood is a powerhouse of minerals, fiber, antioxidants and essential vitamins. Strongly recommended by dieticians, it is great at boosting your child’s immunity. It is best eaten raw, lightly sautéed or in a healthy vegetable soup with cottage cheese and butter.
Like broccoli, spinach is loaded with Vitamin C and is a rich source of antioxidants. It increases your child’s immunity level and fights off many diseases. You can turn it into a delicious spinach soup or add it in small portions to regular meals.
Again, a powerful immunity-booster, ginger contains gingerol, which has anti-inflammatory properties and helps in lowering cholesterol. It also works well to prevent cold and relieve sore throats.
Garlic contains allicin, a compound with heavy concentration of sulphur, which is a natural immunity booster. Also, eating garlic regularly helps in maintaining blood pressure level too. Add it to your regular home-cooked food to keep your kids healthy.
Carrots contain beta carotene, that safeguards the respiratory glands and intestines from bacteria attack, keeping your child healthy. You can use it to prepare carrot soup, along with a few of your childs’ favourite veggies.
Cauliflower is an excellent source of glutathione, an infection-fighting antioxidant, and choline, a mineral that safeguards skin cells. You can include it in salads or add them to vegetable sandwiches.
