How to Boost Immunity through Nutrition with Dianna Moroney
Show Notes

This episode discusses ways to boost immunity in our kids through nutrition, and we have the pleasure to chat with naturopath Dianna Moroney again.  In Episode 2  we chatted with Dianna about supporting children’s health with nutrition.  We hone in on key nutrients for the immune system and some specific foods, a bit about pre and probiotics and what reduces immune activity.

Dianna discusses the role of the immune system and the relationship to gut health and the specific vitamins and minerals that are essential for boosting immune function in kids. Listen to the different types of immune cells and their functions in defending kids from bacteria and viruses and how we can nourish them. 

The importance of prebiotics and probiotics are discussed and their differences explained. It can be overwhelming trying to sift through the plethora of information out there but learn how simple foods naturally contain these good nutrients.

The gut-mind-body health is a balance and we can help maintain this balance in our kids through good nutrition and Dianna discusses ways to bridge the gap when they need more.
