SOMEGA – Healthy Tips for Back to School

August 09, 2022

The best approach to support your child’s immunity is a holistic one. ProvidingThe start of the school year is a time of new beginnings and naturally parents want their children to be both healthy and happy, so supporting their child’s immune systems as they head back into the classroom is high on the priority list for all parents. kids with a healthy and well-balanced diet is essential in helping them to stay healthy. Starting the day with a healthy breakfast is important, as is providing a healthy lunchbox and nourishing dinners. Having healthy snacks available always is important. Try to limit consumption of sugar-loaded foods, snacks and drinks as a high sugar intake negatively affects the immune system.

Encouraging kids to be active is also very important – it’s recommended that kids should play and be active at a moderate to vigorous level, for at least 60 minutes daily. Regular exercise not only helps build strong muscles and healthy bones, but it can also result in better sleep, improved moods, lower stress levels, and increased circulation of immune cells in the body - all factors that contribute to a healthy immune system.

Good sleep habits are also vitally important for children. Sleep allows the body to rest, regenerate and heal and the lack of sleep can affect the immune system. Research shows that people who don't get quality sleep or enough sleep are more likely to get sick after being exposed to a virus.

Multiple micronutrients play an essential part in supporting the immune response in particular vitamins C and D and zinc, copper, selenium and iron. Deficiencies of these micronutrients can impair many aspects of the immune system and can increase susceptibility to infections. Not all Vitamin C supplements are created equal. SOMEGA Liposomal Vitamin C is great-tasting, alcohol and sugar-free, is highly-absorbed and suitable for the entire family. Vitamins D & K in liquid drop format is ideal for children and adults and is placed under the tongue for fast effective absorption.

A well-balanced diet will include fruits and vegetables, full of vitamins and antioxidants, lean protein, healthy fats, including Omega-3s from oily fish. The omega-3 fatty acid called DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid), found in fish oil but not in plant oils, plays a major role when it comes to brain health. DHA is found within the grey matter of the part of our brain known as the frontal cortex. This is the part of your brain responsible for attention, problem-solving, decision-making, learning, memory, emotions, and behaviours.
