Children eat apple
Blossom has now continue to providing Nutrients such as Eggs, Milk ,Greens to the TB Infected children in our Dayspring home. It raised our children’s immunity power because of the nutritious food supplied to them at our Dayspring Home and in the villages.
Maintaining at least the recommended daily allowance for all of the essential vitamins and minerals is another important goal for young patients with TB. The specific levels of nutrients needed depend on the age and sex of the child, so we consulted a doctor and a dietitian about the appropriate foods and amounts to feed the child. Nutrients of particular concern include zinc, selenium, iron, copper and vitamins A, C, D and E, because these may impact immune system functioning and help fight off the invading bacteria. Getting enough omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish, seafood and flaxseeds, and sufficient cholesterol, also improved the outcome for young TB patients. Children with low levels of any of these nutrients were need to take supplements to boost their levels during treatment for TB. Hence we are taking strenuous effort to maintain the same.
