The immune system is the security guard of our body. If it is malfunctioning, we’ll fall sick more often than one can imagine. A good immune system becomes all the more important when dealing with toddlers and kids!
To discuss “How to develop immunity amongst kids?”, Ezyschooling conducted a live session with Mrs. Sanjana Marwah @holistichealth_woman, to enlighten parents about the ways they can boost their child’s immunity for the speculative third wave of Covid.

This system helps prevent many diseases by fighting against bacteria, viruses, and other germs.

So definitely a good immune system would play an important role in the third wave as well.
