While a healthy diet, vitamins and physical activity are the foundation to a strong immune system, there are other tips we often overlook. Make sure your child is getting enough sleep. Manage your child’s stress levels by ensuring they are not overburdened by schoolwork and have plenty of time to play and unwind. And of course, take simple precautions such as maintaining good hygiene habits, and covering coughs and sneezes.
