2.      Consume a balanced and healthy diet

In fresh fruits and vegetables, there are a lot of vitamins which help to boost your child’s immune system. Mothers should look for foods rich in vitamin C (broccoli, strawberries, and oranges) and vitamin D (tuna, fortified milk, and cereals). In addition, eating yogurt with active beneficial bacterias (probiotics) can also help to build defenses.
