Children are prone to illness more than adults as their immune systems are still developing. Knowing the signs and symptoms can help you get them the right treatment early. Ensuring your child has a balanced diet will also keep them healthy and they boost their immune system for when they do pick up the bug. Fresh fruits and vegetables should be consumed daily as well as quality fats, whole grains and lean proteins. A good, quality multivitamin meal will cover any nutrients that they might miss in their diet and help to keep their immune system strong for when these common childhood illness strike. The most common childhood illness includes common cold, chickenpox, conjunctivitis, gastroenteritis, hand, foot and mouth. These diseases are contagious.
