What to eat for children with poor immunity
If you want your baby to have great immunity, you should first ensure that your child has enough sleep time every day. For newborns, daily sleep time should be about 20 hours. Through adequate sleep, children can get adequate rest, nourish their energy, and reduce the burden on the immune system a lot. So besides that, for children under one-year-old, can diet improve their immunity?
For children under one year old, the best way to improve immunity is to receive breastfeeding. There are many types of antibodies in breast milk, and it contains lactoferrin, active immune cells, and other components, which have a significant effect on improving the disease resistance of young children. Formula milk is the next baby food for breast milk. If breastfeeding is really impossible, formula milk powder should also be added to the baby.
Baby can add supplementary food after six months of age, but it should be noted that breast milk and formula milk will still be the baby’s main food before one year of age. The addition of supplementary food should gradually transition from a single small amount to a diversified food so that the baby can absorb nutrients in many ways, which is of great benefit to improve the child’s immunity. The food ingredients used to make supplementary food for the baby should be fresh, try to eat food processed foods made of natural ingredients, and foods with many pigments and additives should be avoided as far as possible.
In addition to the above dietary recommendations, the common foods that can improve the baby’s immunity are the following: brown rice, coix seed, yellow-green vegetables, yogurt, etc.
