  1. As a child, I stayed away from lemons because I caught cold easily. This weakened my immune system further. Now I know lemons are a must and make sure to give them to my kids in one form or the other…

      When I was a child, I used to eat a lot of sour food and used to catch bad throat easily. Hence my mom kept sour things away from me. But balanced intake is very much needed for the immunity. Dont give cold lemon water or avoid it when kids already have cold or cough. Also in India when weather is changing e.g. at beginning of winter it becomes dry suddenly. at such times reduce the intake. Such care shouldnt bring side effects.
