4. Eliminate white sugars and food coloring from their diet
In many clinical studies, even one teaspoon of sugar has been found to significantly suppress a child’s immune system. Simple sugars compete for absorption sites with most vitamins, especially vitamin C, therefore when a child eats a large number of sweets or other sugars at the end of a nutritious meal, the body will have difficulties absorbing the important vitamins. We all know that it is very difficult to avoid sugar completely, but it is still important to do our best to reduce our children’s sugar intake. You can do this by limiting the amount of sweets your child eats, spreading out regular meal times and snacking, and using alternatives such as natural honey, date honey, chopped raisins when you want to sweeten their foods.
And avoid foods with food colorings and preservatives.
