Usually the common cold lasts 6-14 days, three days after the most contagious from two weeks but can still infect others. So the children are very susceptible to flu.
If a child has the flu and expressed as a runny nose may be the child will not notice, usually the children enjoy using hand to pick one’s nose, so on, bacteria or virus would move to hands, clothing , toys, can exist simultaneously within 30 minutes. And when other children touch or play toys, then hand back to touch the nose, rubbing eyes and the like will become infected.

The red fruits and vegetables often rich in vitamin A.
3. Eat more foods containing vitamin C
