Healthy food is the first and foremost key to make kids stronger. Dark leafy green vegetables, lentils, nuts, carrots, kiwi, cauliflower, garlic helps in building immunity. These days most of the kids refuse to eat such food, so we should make eating interesting for them. Instead of serving a bowl of salad, we should make a sandwich of whole wheat and stuff fresh vegetables in it. Don’t forget to cut it into interesting shapes, may be, of their favorite animal or cartoon character. We should aim at inculcating healthy food habits in our kids which will ensure that they stay healthy forever. Don’t pamper them with fast food or colas. Remember, a well nourished body has a stronger immune system.
We love chubby kids but keeping children lean and slim is better. Obesity depresses the immune system by interfering with the ability of white blood cells to produce antibodies. Always have a routine for your child. Keep him active. It’s better to start your child’s routine very early in life. Being active not only keeps his muscles lean but also induces happiness in your child's life. Take kids out for activities, widen their social circle and let them create hobbies for themselves. An active child’s body produces more antibodies and hence his ability to defend himself increases naturally.
Sleep deprivation not only makes a child cranky and tough to handle but more susceptible to illness by reducing natural killer cells. For a healthy child, sound and required hours of sleep is a must. A newborn should sleep for 18 hours and hours should reduce gradually. For a toddler 12 hours are enough and for a pre-schooler 10 hours are sufficient. If your child doesn’t have enough time for a nap due to activities, try putting him to bed early. Also, quality of sleep is also very important. Following ‘Early to bed and early to rise’ principle has many positive effects on one's health and immune system.
Breast feeding, vaccination at proper time, avoiding passive smoking also helps in building stronger immunity. When every child of our country is healthy and strong from within, only then we can aim for an immune India. In simpler words, for Nation’s progress, health is the key and it starts with building children stronger from within.

The immune system must act like a shield and guard the body. And with healthier children, let's build a stronger India.
