Immunity Boosting Meal Suggestions for Kids

My daughter hates veggies and is very choosy about the food she eates. She just recovered from a long-lasting low-grade fever that lasted for more than a week.

So I want to give her some foods that increase her immunity but which she will eat. I came across this article on WhatToExpect.com on immunity boosting foods. Here's what I got from the article.

Main foods to aim for seem to be foods rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, food which has live cultures, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, antioxidants, Omega-3 fatty acids and Zinc. But how to get these foods inside them? Here are some suggestions from the article.

Suggestions on how to serve:
  • Steamed baby carrots or broccoli
  • Mashed sweet potatoes with some maple syrup if they need the sweetness
  • Fruit based smoothie with spinach or kale and tablespoon of flax oil
  • Greek yoghurt & serve with granola, fruit, nuts or honey
  • Oatmeal with cinnamon and honey
  • Whole grain toast with jam and nut butter
  • Yoghurt with berries and walnuts on top
  • Chicken noodle soup
  • All-natural Almond butter on apple slices
  • Peanut-butter and jelly sandwich
