Various studies have shown that garlic has antibacterial and antiviral properties. It has been shown to stimulate the production of white blood cells, and can act as an antioxidant in the body.

Kid-friendly serving idea:
  • Put lots of garlic into chicken noodle soup to help ward off or relieve cold and flu symptoms. Put some minced garlic into a Greek-style salad made with cucumber, tomato, and feta cheese.
