Carrots: Carrots have long been known for their exceptional beta-carotene and Vitamin A content. Vitamin A also supports the lining of the digestive tract, in turn, nurturing gut health. Keeping your gut healthy and happy is essential in keeping your immune system strong.

Dates: Aside from being a tasty sweet treat, dates are a great source of dietary fibre which plays a critical role in digestive health. Beware of consuming too many, though, as they're high in fructose, which is one of the key sugars to avoid.
Coconut yoghurt: Coconut yoghurt is a great source of probiotics, as well as being a rich source of antioxidants. Coconut also contains antibacterial and anti fungal properties which aid with illness prevention.
