Dear Jana, my toddler gets colds all the time and I’m worried about his immune system. Is there anything I can give him?
It’s perfectly normal and actually beneficial for your child to get frequent colds at this age. It’s important because a toddler’s immune system is developing defences that will serve them for the rest of their lives. Fortunately, there are strains of probiotics that can assist with reducing the severity of colds. Additionally, some herbal medicines are good for supporting a healthy immune response.
If your toddler is not recovering from their cold or their fever lasts more than a few days, seek the advice of a health professional.
