When you’re really sick with a bad head cold and a sore throat, and you’re bedded down under your thick quilt, what do you really crave?
Chicken soup of course! It is a tradition handed down by our mothers and grandmothers and for good reason:
Chicken soup has healing properties and now it’s scientifically proven!
Chicken soup has anti inflammatory properties which will reduce the mucous production in your nose, helping clear up your nasal congestion.
It’ll also soothe your throat and provide important hydration which your body needs to help flush out the infection.
This is the chicken soup recipe I use and it is actually the only soup my kids will eat!

If there’s only one supplement you give your kids, make it vitamin D.
Vitamin D, also known as the “Sunshine Vitamin”, is crucial to the functioning of your body.
What Does Vitamin D Do?
It promotes bone growth by increasing Calcium absorption.
It boosts the immune system which will protect your kids from getting sick.
Got a bad sinus infection?
When I was pregnant I had a really bad sinus infection which lasted a few weeks.
I weighed my options between going on antibiotics which might resolve the sinusitis but would also likely lead to a yeast infection, versus taking vitamins and praying it would clear up on its own.
My friend happened to mention trying a saline nasal spray which had worked for her.
I put together a fun list of ways to enjoy the snow:
1) Enjoy a steaming mug of hot cocoa while you gaze out your window at the beautiful white landscape
2) Hold a family snowball fight
