On the lead up to winter, it is important to remember that a good immune system means fewer sniffles for your little one.
There is no better time to start building up your defenses and having a go-to system in place, just in case a cold is on the horizon.
You may be wondering, ‘why it is that more people tend to get sick with a cold or flu in winter?’. While these viruses can be contracted year-round, the winter time decreases our defense.
These little buggers enter into our system via our nose.
