How to Boost Your Child’s Immunity Naturally

Autumn is always a good reminder to take care of the immune system, but the reality is that children need immune support year-round. As they’re exposed to new bugs at school, daycare, and friends’ houses, they need all the aid they can get. 

Boosting your child’s immunity doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, there are a variety of natural ways to accomplish it - here are our top suggestions.

4 Ways to Support Your Child’s Immune System

  1. Serve Nutrient-Dense Fruits and Veggies

What we eat plays a big role in our ability to fight off colds, flu, and even disease. Fruits and veggies, in particular, are packed with important vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. Also known as antioxidants, phytonutrients are chemical compounds that resist bacteria and infection, protecting the cells from damage. 

Green veggies, dark leafy greens, and berries are rich in antioxidants. Cruciferous veggies, berries, and citrus are also packed with vitamin C, which supports the immune system. Aim for five servings of fruits and veggies per day for your children.

You can also give your child a supplement QLife Immune Drops provide natural immune system support through a variety of powerhouse ingredients, like baptisia, echinacea, goldenseal, olive leaf, sage, and thyme. 

  1. Encourage More Exercise

Your child can increase their number of natural infection-fighting cells (known as killer cells) just by exercising. Aim for at least one hour of activity per day for your child, whether that’s playing a sport, going for a walk, hitting the playground, or having a dance party. 

  1. Increase Sleep Time

The number of sleep hours your child needs will depend on their age, ranging from eight to 10 hours per night for teens and 12 to 16 hours for babies. As our children age, they might fall out of their sleep routine as they have more activities and more access to screens. Encourage more sleep by keeping a regular bedtime schedule and limiting screen time before bed.

  1. Know Your Natural Remedies

No matter what you do, your child will likely have a runny nose, itchy throat, or fever at some point during the year. At these times, it’s important to spot the signs early and provide a remedy quickly.
