Foods that Heal

Kids may need to eat more protein to help heal a wound. Our body needs protein to help build and repair muscle, skin, and other body tissues. Protein also helps fight infection, balance body fluids, and carry oxygen throughout our body.

Do your children have enough protein in their diet? Some high-protein foods include Spinach, broccoli, asparagus, lima beans, green peas, lean meat, poultry, and fish.
