Children and the common cold

Get your children’s immune system ready! Children catch an average of 6 to 10 colds every year.

Children are more susceptible to colds than adults because they haven’t built up enough specific immunity to fight the many different cold viruses and they don’t have the same reflexes as adults when it comes to hygiene.

Children pick up bugs easily. The average adult will get a cold or flu 2 to 4 times a year whereas children are two times more likely to be affected by these viral infections. Why is this so? Why is the immune resistance to infection lower in a child? Follow our tips to help strengthen your child's immune system, to help them fight off bugs before they develop an infection.
