5 foods to increase immunity in Children

It is pretty much easy to get a communicated infection in the crowded world. Other factors are also very much in war with your immune system. And while adults are a bit careful about it, you can’t do much about children other than taking steps to increase their immunity against everyday infections.

Dr. Neha Bansal, our child specialists talk about the 5 foods that should be included in your children’s diet to help their immune system fight with diseases:

Green Leafy Vegetables

It goes without saying that these vegetable are rich in nutrients your child’s young body needs. It can be quite challenging to feed them though. Consider adding it to omelettes, wraps, homemade burgers, and other things they like.


YogurtImage Source:


Stomach infections are common in children and it’s mostly because of bad bacteria. Yogurt is a good probiotic to include in your child’s diet to fight gastro-related illnesses. If your child doesn’t like plain curd, you can try giving them flavoured ones, or in other forms like buttermilk, raita, etc.

Citrus Fruits

Citrus fruits are rich in Vitamin C and helps increase your child’s immunity against common cold, flu, fever, and other seasonal infections.


NutsImage Source:


When your child have hunger pangs at odd timings, nuts can be a good substitute to candies and chocolates. They are rich in proteins, vitamins, minerals, and required anti-oxidants.


ProteinsImage Source:


Proteins in any form are good for your child. Include it in their meals in form of eggs (the best), meat, or pulses.

If your child is a fussy eater or his immunity refuses to be up, it’s time you fix an appointment with a paediatrician. You can book an appointment with Dr. Neha Bansal by contacting Bansal Global Hospital directly.
