Every day children are exposed to bacteria, viruses and other bugs. Children and especially young children are more susceptible to infections; their immune systems have had little experience in fighting them and are slower to start their defences. Whether or not your child will get sick when exposed to an infection depends on the current state of their immune system. And this is where nutrition plays a major role. Imbalances and deficiencies of certain nutrients can result in frequent colds, flus and other recurring illnesses. Dietician Anna Niec-Oszwya discusses how nutrition has an influence on your child's immune system and relates this to their special needs in times of growth and development. The nutritional needs of children eating a vegetarian diet are discussed and the author also provides healthy, quick and easy recipes and meal plans to get sick children back on their feet. For every parent and carer of children from toddlers to pre-teens, this is a handy reference which can be dipped into and consulted regularly.
