Preventing and Avoiding Spring Colds and Flus

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!

Preventing and avoiding spring colds

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.
