8 Moms Share What They Did to Help Boost Their Child’s Immune System

All parents want their children to be happy, healthy, and less prone to sickness. Now that the rainy season is here, it’s easier for our kids to catch a virus, especially when their immune systems are down. We already know the basics of child nutrition: Give them healthy food, make sure they get some exercise, have enough sleep, and take prescribed multivitamins (when needed). But today, I will be sharing other ways that you can help boost your child’s immune system, based on first-hand experiences from fellow moms.

Baby and Breakfast: Parenthood How You Can Boos Your Child's Immune System


"Get enough sunlight for a good dose of vitamin D, which is excellent for the bones and immune system". - Chezka Arellano, mom of 2 kids, 5 and 2 years old

"Do not hide indoors when it’s raining. There is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothes. My dad, a doctor, let us play in the rain (as long as it wasn't windy) once in a while to boost our immune system. I’ve let my son play in the rain numerous times na." - Nadine Padilla, mom of a 5 year old

“Let your child walk barefoot to stimulate the nerves connected to the different organs of the body. This will promote blood flow.” - Rhea Elaine Chua, mom of 2 kids, 4 and 1 year old

"I'm all for healthy eating but when I got my kids in school, I realized shortly that they needed fortification. I'll be the odd mom that says I am all for vitamin C. I can pass on the multivitamin, but vitamin C is a must for us." - Meg Arcilla, mom of 2 kids, 11 and 8 years old

Allow your child to get 'dirty' outdoors. Mico Dimanlig-Sadorra, Mom of a 4 year old

I use Pure Therapeutic Essential Oils. Frankincense, bergamot, palmarosa, lavender, tea tree, and lemon are safe for kids, and they aren't as powerful as other oils that may inhibit immune system development. Dee Magno, Mom of a 4 year old

“This might fall under pedia-prescribed medicines too, but sharing anyway... Our pedia told us to use echinacea drops but only ten days a month" - Kristine Cadoc-De Guzman, mom of a 4-year-old

“I let my child play outdoors. I allow him to play with other kids and get dirty. Aside from eating vegetables, I also give him probiotics.” - Donna Beltran, mom of a 1-year-old
