As the weather changes throughout different seasons in the year, the body naturally finds ways to adapt to these changes without any disruption to our overall health. But, sometimes as the body adapts, we may experience symptoms like cough, catarrh, headaches, and fluctuating body temperatures, which is normal in this season.
It is important that we take note of the things we can and should do, to improve our health and that of our kids, so that they're not falling in and out of sickness. Here are a few tips to try out.

You should invest in clothing made of wool and cotton, as they're perfect fabrics to keep warm in. Clothes like; sweaters, hoodies, head warmers, stockings, and joggers are excellent examples of clothing that can keep your kids warm.

3. Boost their immune system with vitamin C rich foods, and turn of the air conditioning
Include in your child's daily diet, foods that are rich in vitamin C to boost their immune system. Dietary supplements are also a good source of vitamin C as well.
