Dr. Taz Bhatia, an immune support and wellness physician, offers seven tips parents can follow to help keep their kids healthy: Add foods high in vitamin C: Citrus fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C like: oranges, grapefruits and beets support and help build a strong immune system. “With children, we really want them to get their vitamins through food, so the earlier you can establish some of these healthy eating habits, the better for their overall health,” Bhatia says. Make chicken soup a weekly option: Another immune-supporting food for kids is chicken soup. It isn’t just an option when children are sick. “It’s a great food to bring in maybe a couple of times a week to keep the immune system primed and supportive,” she explains. Chicken soup produces collagen that helps keep skin, hair and bones strong. It also has antiviral and antibacterial properties. Check out the video above for more tips.
