The Culprit for Your Kid’s Cold and Cough Is in Your Kitchen

Since the Covid pandemic has begun, there is one thing that has become the prime focus for all of us. That’s Immunity! We are all doing a lot of things, taking a lot of supplements different herbal concoctions to build our immunity. As adults, we can make many efforts and lifestyle changes to build our immunity. It is not so easy for anyone to make a lifestyle change, but it becomes even more challenging with kids.

The chilly weather, the covid epidemic, and the annual increase in cases are all enough to make a mother panic. In the current climate, every cough and cold is a nightmare for mothers. What if I told you that by simply saying ‘NO’ to one ingredient in your cupboard, you might lower your child’s chances of getting a cold and cough?

Yes, You read that correctly. The processed white sugar that gives life to your sweets and is a quick fix to brighten your tiny bundle of joy’s mood is the real cause of your children’s recurrent colds and coughs.

Keeping our children away from this white delicacy is quite challenging. It can be found in chocolates, sweets, candies, and various commercial and homemade foods. However, there are a variety of sugar substitutes that are palatable and have a number of health benefits. Let’s have a look at a few examples.

1. Palm Candy

Palm candy is a natural sugar that can be used in place of ordinary candies for your children. It can satisfy a sugar need while also being nutrient-dense. It is safe for children over the age of six months. It can be used to make sweets and drinks at home. It dissolves quickly like sugar, and the best part is that it has been used for cough cures for centuries.

2. Jaggery

Jaggery is a traditional kind of sugar that is high in nutrients. It’s a great sugar substitute, and it can aid your child with a sore throat, throat congestion, and indigestion.

3. Honey

Honey is a natural sweetener that can also be used to treat colds. It is suitable for children aged one year and up.

These are some of the most often used sweeteners. I’m sure there are plenty more traditional sweeteners out there, and I’d love to hear a few more names from you. A slight adjustment can make our lives easier and healthier.

Thank you.
