During back-to-school season, now more than ever, I’ve had a level of anxiety and stress about the return like never before. Whether you choose to homeschool, virtual school, or opt for online classes, or send your child to public or private facilities, these are my thoughts to help you and your child have a successful and healthy school year.

Nutrition and the Immune System

Everyone generally needs the same type of nutrients: vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, protein, and fat. But children need different amounts of each nutrient at different ages. To be healthy and ensure adequate growth of body and brain, among the important nutrients your child needs every day are calcium, iron, vitamin D, vitamin C, omega 3 fatty acids (fish oil), probiotics, as well as protein, healthy fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Eating these foods in abundance every day keeps the immune system humming, and keeps colds and the flu-bugs at bay.

Starting your child’s day with a good breakfast of quality protein with plenty of fruits and vegetables provide energy, a sharp mind, concentration, and it sets the stage for healthy eating the rest of the day.  I’ll share my Immune-Boosting Berry Smoothie Recipe as a morning option.
