Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My son is 10 years old. He often gets a fever twice or thrice a month. My doctor told me that he has poor immunity. So I would like to know a diet plan that would help to improve my child’s immunity.

Kindly help.

Welcome to

Thank you for your query.

I understand your concern. Encourage a balanced diet. Ensure that your child is getting a balanced diet consisting of whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein sources like chicken, fish, eggs, and legumes. Focus on vitamins and minerals. Certain vitamins and minerals are essential for immune function. These include vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc, and iron. Ensure that your child is getting enough of these nutrients from his diet. Foods rich in vitamin C include citrus fruits, berries, kiwi, broccoli, and tomatoes. Vitamin D is found in fatty fish like salmon, fortified dairy products, and egg yolks. Zinc is present in foods such as oysters, beef, chicken, beans, and nuts. Iron-rich foods include red meat, poultry, fish, lentils, and spinach.

I hope this has helped you. Thank you.
