Keep them wrapped in warm colds, let them play only in the sun and give them hot dals or soups.

Do story telling sessions for them indoors, ask them questions afterwards to keep them interested & reward them, give them some interesting indoor games to play also give them chyawanprash with milk at bedtime.

Recommended Foods ~ If a child comes down with a cold, encourage them to eat lightly. This allows their body to concentrate on healing, rather than on digesting a three-course meal. Choose foods wisely; some of the best natural medicines are found at home in the kitchen cabinet:

* Steamed vegetables and soups fortify the body with minerals.
* Miso and chicken soup, herbal teas and water flush away toxins and keep the respiratory tract moist.
* Ginger, onions and garlic warm the body and boost the immune system.
* Hot water with lemon and honey soothes the throat and chest and thins mucous.
* Mint tea and peppermint candies help with tickling coughs.

Foods to Avoid ~ Sugar depresses the immune system and keeps white blood cells from being able to fight infection, so it is to be avoided. Although many people drink orange juice for its vitamin C content, 100 percent fruit juices are also high in sugar. Switching to water or teas or diluting juices is a good idea.

For the children should not be affected from cold you must have them take oil bath (with hot water)once in a week and always save them from drenching in rain and avoid giving them cool things often to drink or eat.

Jakir, can you complete the question please ? do you mean away from cold drinks ? cold environment ? prevent kids getting cold ?

If it is the last, there is not much to prevent it. kids will keep catching cold from schoolmates. you can insist on hygenic practices . you can try to buildup immunity by ensuring they have nutritious food. as they grow up, they will build immunity to each type of cold virus and frequency of catching cold will reduce.
