Winter Special: Homemade Immunity Booster for Kids
Moms are often on the lookout for healthy foods that can help improve their kids’ immunity. In today’s world, where food items are full of chemicals, the rising levels of air pollution, antibiotic resistance, and new germs, it’s essential to protect our kids. Advertising, lack of time and energy, and lack of innovation can attract many parents to commercially processed foods that are not as healthy as they claim.
So instead of opting for these so-called natural immune booster medicines or fortified foods, try this secret formula which would ensure the entire family’s good health!
Making it is so simple that even kids can make it on their own! Also, it’s quite pocket-friendly.
All you need is a few green gooseberries (amla) from the local market. Wash them thoroughly to remove the dirt. Get your chopping board and cut the amla in small pieces (do not peel them).
Take them in a small bowl, add a little black salt, a pinch of sugar and toss it well.
Here is your instant, fresh, juicy, amla candy ready! You can even add some hing (asafoetida), more sugar, and a little lemon juice as per your taste. It becomes more tangy, sweet, and tasty if it’s kept for a few hours outside as amla releases its own juices. Kids can easily eat this delicious amla candy while playing or studying. Let them eat it as much as they want! My two-year-old daughter loves these candies.
Amla never loses its vitamin C content after being chopped and stored. It has four times more vitamin C content in comparison to other fruits and vegetables. It not only helps in building immunity but is also great for skin and hair. It is also good for digestion because it is rich in fibres. Make sure to include this in your family’s daily diet and enjoy the winter season without any worries!
