Every parent becomes super cautious when it comes to their kids and in the on going pandemic we need to boost our kid’s immunity in order to protect them from Covid-19. So here are some easy nutrition tips

  • Give them freshly cooked food as it is nutritious and hygienic. Add milk to their diet, it will be helpful in maintaining good health.
  • Try not to give them processed food as they have high amounts of saturated fatty acids, sugars, and salt.  Also, avoid sugary drinks as well and replace them with lemon or coconut water.
  • Make sure you give your kids at least 7-8 glasses of water daily. 
  • Add dry fruits in their diet.

  • Give your child plenty of foods rich in iron, such as red meat, spinach, broccoli, nuts, and beans.
  • Feed your kids foods rich in Vitamin B6 as it helps in strengthening the immune system. 
  • Breastfeeding is important and it should not stop during the pandemic. Exclusive breastfeeding is essential for babies for six months so keep breastfeeding your babies.
