Immune system

Children need good immune systems to cope with everyone’s germs in school.

Good immune system development and function depend on the action of the sun’s UV rays on the skin and Vitamin D.

Physical activity outdoors gives the immune system a boost for a whole 24 hours.

Experiencing cold temperatures stimulates the immune system.

Contact with the many beneficial, helpful-micro-bugs in the soil, help our immune systems develop healthily. Indeed, this contact helps our immune systems to learn what belongs to us i.e. ‘self’ and what doesn’t, i.e. ‘not self’, meaning that we are less likely to develop allergies such as Eczema and Asthma.

Healthy immune systems mean that our children are ready for learning at school.
