Protection against common ailments

When my kids were a lot younger, the slightest rash or bruise they acquire worries me so much. I tried protecting them from insect bites by applying generous amount of mosquito repellent on their skin. There were times I tried closing all our windows even at daytime to prevent smoke emitted by vehicles from entering the house. Even if my kids have been vaccinated against measles, chicken pox and flu, they still get the virus somehow. No matter what I do, I can’t shield my children from getting sick. What I did was to make their young body nourished with the right amount of food including rice, fish, meat, variety of vegetable, bread and milk, fruits in season, and vitamins to boost their natural resistance against common ailments. Also, I instill in them the value of personal hygiene like the frequent and proper hand washing.
