The Health Site published a health report in which it stated that some viruses spread more widely in cold and dry weather.
Because of this, children are more susceptible to illnesses such as sore throats, colds and flu, intestinal illness, pneumonia, acute otitis media, asthma and itchy skin.
Therefore, it is very important to feed children properly to keep their immune system strong and able to fight infection and infection.
And be careful to include fruits and vegetables, which are a great source of vitamins and minerals that can prevent and help fight colds and flu.
At the same time, there are also some foods that you must avoid introducing to your children during the winter to prevent them from contracting the disease, including:
Sugary foods: A high level of sugar in the body can lead to a decrease in the percentage of white blood cells that protect your child from diseases, so too much sugar can expose children’s bodies to viral and bacterial infections.
Foods rich in histamine: Histamine is known to be a chemical found in some cells of the body and many foods, and it helps the body fight allergies.
But eating foods rich in histamine during the winter may increase mucus production, which may cause difficulty swallowing food and other throat problems, so foods rich in it should be avoided for children such as tomatoes, avocados, eggplant, mushrooms, and many preservatives and industrial dyes used in foods.
Red meat products: Red meat and eggs contain a lot of proteins that boost mucus production, which can be very irritating to your child’s throat in winter, so fish and poultry are the best options.
Dairy products: The animal protein found in dairy products may thicken saliva and mucus as well, making them harmful and an irritant for your baby, especially when he suffers from congestion, so stay away from these products as much as possible.
