Immunity building nutrition: why eating cooked fresh food is important
Although it’s impossible to fend off all illnesses, eating nutritious, fresh foods can play a valuable role in your immune health and nutrition for your kids. Your immune system defends your body against diseases and helps to keep you healthy. By eating a balanced diet that is high in fruits and vegetables, you are providing your body with the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that it needs to stay strong and healthy. In addition, having a balanced plate that is filled with healthy proteins (including beans, chickpeas, lentils, meat, poultry, seafood, etc.) and nutritious whole grains (from brown rice, whole wheat rotis etc.) keeps your body working well!
Certain bacteria that can cause illness are found on uncooked foods. For example, bacteria can be found on unwashed fruits and vegetables or under cooked meats, seafood and poultry. In order to ensure that you and your family aren’t being exposed to this type of unhealthy bacteria, make sure to wash and cook your foods properly.
