Boost your immunity with whole grain cereals!

A strong immune system is essential to good health

You can help make your own immune system function well by eating a balanced diet. Starting the day with a whole grain cereal from Nestlé is one way to help maintain a normal immune system. Many of the Nestlé whole grain cereal products are fortified with essential vitamins and minerals to help your immune system function properly.

 

 

How to maintain a normal immune system?

You can help maintain a normal immune system by eating a good diet providing key vitamins and minerals you need, such as Vitamin B6, Vitamin D, Vitamin C and iron. Scientists have found that the body’s immune response — how it reacts to the invaders — depends on having enough of these nutrients.

 

They help maintain your immune cells and power their function. Some cereals are fortified with vitamins and minerals to help maintain your intake of these essential building blocks. If you combine these with getting enough sleep, doing plenty of exercise, and keeping your stress levels low, you’ll be on the way to maintaining a normal immune system.

 

 

You can also add some immunity-supporting toppers to your Nestlé fortified breakfast cereals. For instance, a bowl of SHREDDED WHEAT BITESIZE can be combined with fruit and low-fat milk to make a delicious and healthy start to the day. You could even couple your MULTIGRAIN CHEERIOS with a handful of berries, nuts and milk.

Milk is a nutrient powerhouse, loaded with B vitamins, vitamin C and folate. And the right choice of fruit can give you a boost. Oranges and other citrus are packed with vitamin C, while you’ll also find it in blueberries, along with minerals such as iron, magnesium, and zinc.
