Believe it or not, there are still tons of colds and flus going around.
My sons had an awful head cold throughout ALL of their spring break just 3 weeks ago… high fevers, sore throats and horrible coughs. I swear, it’s never fun getting sick… but it’s even worse when the weather is warm.
I’ve been doing a ton of research on ways to feed your cold and flu and I have a few gems that I am excited to share with you!
Audrey’s Food and Drink Tips:
Grape juice- As soon as you get exposure to the stomach flu, start drinking three glasses of grape juice a day for three days. It changes the pH balance in your small and large intestines, and will “literally keep the stomach bug away,” said Audrey.
Clementine- If your kids do get sick, clementines will help cut down on the length of illness.
Tuna salad- Will help build up the immune system when children are sick.
Garlic- Garlic works like chicken soup. Add just a little bit to food and it will help combat the cold or flu.
Chicken soup- Soup definitely feeds a cold. It’s soothing and calming, but it helps control the production and spread of inflammation in congesting causing white blood cells.
