Kids Eat Right Month is underway

Whether your children are heading back to school or learning from home, keeping them healthy is a main focus in light of the pandemic. With “Kids Eat Right” Month officially underway, we are highlighting steps to ensure a balanced diet.

Karman Meyer, with the Tennessee Beef Industry Council, speaks with RFD-TV on the main objective for the month and how proper nutrition plays a role in supporting a healthy immune system. “Good nutrition is essential to a strong immune system, which may offer protection from seasonal illnesses and other health problems,” she notes. “No one food or supplement can prevent illness, but you can help support your immune system by including three nutrients.”

The three nutrients she mentions that can help support your immune system are protein, zinc, and vitamin A.
