My daughter was always prone to respiratory infections, and mild asthma. Once me moved to a diet that included more fruits and vegetables, and I moved her to adult vitamins – a multi, C, E, and calcium with magnesium, D, and Zinc – She stayed healthy. Even now, if she strays away from this healthy routine, she starts getting sick again.
