Question of the day: We’re going to see lots of family in the next few days and everyone around us is sick! How do I boost my kids immune system?

Answer: There is no supplement that will boost your children’s immune system but I do have two suggestions.
1. Make sure they get enough sleep. Being “run down” will make them more likely to get sick.
2. Teach them to keep their hands away from their faces. Most germs enter our bodies when we touch the mucous membranes of our mouth, nose and eyes. Without germs, they won’t get sick.
And remember, with every cold and fever, your child’s immune system is learning to fight infection.
Happy Holidays. Enjoy your precious time with your children. They grow up way too fast!
