From the child's birth to the child's kindergarten graduation, the topic of children's immunity is an inexhaustible one for young parents. A great deal of challenges have been faced along the way as a result of the frequent illness of children as a result of the natural development of their immune systems.
In addition to our innate immunity, we also develop acquired immunity as we grow older. In the process of integrating new antigens into the immune system, the immune system learns to respond accordingly. The concept of acquired immunity is based on the fact that the person's immune system detects antigens that he comes into contact with during his lifetime.
In order to acquire immunity, the main feature is the ability to learn, adapt, and remember new information over a lifetime. As a result of getting in touch with the environment, we are able to build up our immune system, and that is precisely why it is more common for children to get sick at an early age, due to infections, mostly respiratory and intestinal.
Keeping in line with what has been said, it is of utmost importance to expose children as much as possible to external influences in order to make sure that their immune systems acquire an immune memory that will be retained for the rest of their lives.
HOW TO STRENGTHEN CHILDREN'S IMMUNITY
In the following article, we would like to share with you some tips that will contribute to strengthening children's immunity, which may have a positive impact on adults as well. A healthy body starts with a nutritious and varied diet that satisfies the body's need for energy as well as the body's need for a sufficient quantity of nutrients and protective compounds to stay healthy.
As humans, we consume food every day for a variety of reasons, including providing nutrients for the building of tissues (proteins, iron and calcium), energy for metabolic processes and physical activity (fats and carbohydrates), and nutrients for a range of physiological functions (vitamins and minerals).
In order to prevent deficiencies in certain nutrients that lead to the development of diseases, the key to maintaining a proper diet is variety, balance, and moderation. In order to maintain a healthy diet, we recommend a daily eating routine consisting of five meals a day with fruits and vegetables, carbohydrates, fish, lean meats, and vegetable oils.
In order to instill the basics of proper nutrition in children, cultivate healthy eating habits and prepare meals for them from an early age. Physical activity is not achieved by every third adult and four out of five adolescents even though the recommendations and the proven positive impact it has on a person's mental and physical health have been made and proven.
As well as improving health in numerous chronic conditions, exercise also strengthens immune function and improves sleep in children.3 Children are advised to play and spend time outdoors for a number of reasons, it speeds up their breathing and air flow, which makes their airways cleaner and they sleep better.
When the air in a closed space is dry, the mucosa on the nasal passages is dried, which results in the nasal hairs being unable to perform their purpose of purifying the air, resulting in an easier way for respiratory and other diseases to be transmitted.
It is recommended that the premises be ventilated regularly and that regular hygienic procedures are carried out.
