NOTES & TIPS:

  • Tumeric and ginger help to support immune health and fight infections

  • Kefir is full of gut friendly probiotics which help to strengthen your immune health - you can swap it with a probiotic rich natural yoghurt if you cannot find kefir at the supermarket. Some health food stores also stock vegan kefir, so look out for that at your local shops too!

  • Vitamin C rich papaya and mandarin can help reduce the duration and severity of a cold

  • Goji berries and dates provide your body with easy to digest energy for a boost

  • Swap kefir for your choice of milk for a refreshing smoothie
