Published on November 8, 2019


Back are the days of chills and laze! 

When it is winter, you need to be extra prepared in terms of keeping your kids warm and healthy. Amazingly, winter is the best season to improve immunity. The best way to improve your little one’s immunity is to give include food that enhances immune strength.

Seasonal fruits

With every season, the mantra to stay healthy is to eat a lot of seasonal food. Seasonal fruits are there for a reason. With seasonal food, you are sure it’s not from produce that’s stored long. Seasonal food has all the nutrients and antioxidants that is otherwise lost in cold stored food.

Dry fruits

Include the goodness of dry fruits in the winter season. Dry fruit powder mixed in milk helps your toddler gain weight and the best thing is that its mid aromatic flavor makes it a delicious drink for children.

Vegetables

We’ve always learned that a healthy diet must include green leafy vegetables. Yes, because the vitamins in these vegetables not only energy boosters but also helps fight diseases. In winters, try to include more of underground/rooted vegetables – ginger, carrot, potato, onions, garlic, radish, yams, sweet potatoes, beets, turnips, etc,

Badam halwa

Who doesn’t love to have a warm delicacy in winters? This healthy dessert made with milk, sugar, ghee and almonds is a favorite of any Indian. Almonds will keep your child’s body warm and help in the stimulation of digestion. They are also a good source of protein that is essential for bone strengthening

Gajar ka halwa

Another traditional dessert prepared in Indian homes during winter. Loaded with ghee, nuts, and milk, this preparation has the essential nutrients to boost the immune system.

Vegetable soup

Vegetable soups are wholesome and healthy. You can make soup with your choice of fresh vegetables, cream and spices. You can serve it as an evening snack for your babies. The goodness of vitamins in these vegetables helps in energizing your kids and is refreshing too.

Your child’s daily food intake should be a combination of all of the above. As we say, ‘wintertime is for comfort food and warmth,’ give your child good food to treat winter blues.
