HOW TO KEEP YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM STRONG
Did You Know
We all want to stay healthy during the winter season and fortunately, there are easy ways to build our immunity to help fend off coughs and sniffles.
Recent Zespri™ SunGold™ Kiwifruit research* revealed that increasing the levels of fruit and vegetables in the diet is the number one approach embraced by Australian families to keep their immune systems strong and healthy.
Well-known nutritionist and chef Teresa Cutter explained: “Food is one of the most powerful tools we have to help prevent disease, and a healthy body begins with a healthy immune system. It maintains homeostasis by defending against viruses and bacteria which causes inflammation in the body, illnesses, and disease.”
HOW DO I HELP MY IMMUNE SYSTEM?
If you want to help your immunity, one of the best things you can do is introduce a range of fresh food high in vitamins and nutrients. Packing your diet with food high in vitamin C, such as Zespri™ SunGold™ Kiwifruit which contains 100% of your daily vitamin C needs in just one fruit, is one of the easiest ways to keep your immune system healthy.
HOW DO I KEEP MY FAMILY’S IMMUNE SYSTEM HEALTHY IN WINTER?
Help your family stay healthy this winter by offering delicious yet nutritious family meals that the whole family will love.
Teresa continued by saying: “Loading up on food with vitamin C is often the first line of defence during the cold and flu season. So for parents, it’s about finding ways to sneak in delicious and nutritious foods.”
