Immune-supporting baby food

Now's the time to power up on immunity-boosting nutrients. Here is our shortlist of nutrient packed (super) foods to add to your baby’s meals during this time. Shop immune-boosting blends here

Ginger

Ginger root for flu and cold symptoms are commonplace in Asia and are quickly catching on elsewhere. As a well-known immunity building food, ginger inhibits the protein in the influenza virus that causes infection. Cut a slice and throw it into your water bottle. It can be blended into your baby’s food to help ease flu like symptoms or help in boosting immunity.

Garlic

Garlic contains compounds that help the immune system fight germs. Whole garlic contains alliin, a compound that turns into allicin when garlic is crushed or chewed. These compounds have shown to have flu-fighting and immune boosting effects against viruses such as the common cold and the flu. While we know your tiny human won’t be quite into chewing a clove of garlic, so blend into baby food.

Leafy Greens

Greens such as kale and spinach are packed with immune-boosting properties to fight infection. With high levels of Vitamin C and Vitamin E, greens help fight off infection and regenerate other antioxidants in the body.

Turmeric

Curcumin, the active compound in turmeric, relieves inflammation by blocking inflammatory pathways caused by certain viruses. To increase the power of curcumin by 2000%, pair it with black pepper. It can be blended into baby food or lightly sprinkled onto your child’s finger foods.

Yogurt

Yogurt is rich in probiotic cultures, which are essential for immune health. Approximately 80% of our immune system resides in the gut, so in order to keep our immune system strong we need to keep our intestinal system healthy with probiotics. 

Mix breakfast puree's into full cream, plain yogurt.

The best option is a combination of these foods to create powerful nutrient pairings to fight flu symptoms in your baby (or yourself!).

Red Meat 

Iron is found in red meat and is one of the most critical nutrients for development. You’ve probably noticed that we often talk about its role in brain development. But it’s also necessary for biochemical reactions for your baby’s immune cells and blood production.
