My D is not feeling...sore throat, headache and low fever....hoping it's not the virus but shes with her dad anyway.

She is worried and it was a perfect time to remind her that continued nutrition will keep.her safe and healthy from the virus and all most serious illness. She seemed to really get that! It was a win! Told her body repairs itself over time so must keep eating and building up her immunity forever. She surely doesn't want to be sick.
Hi @Scaredmom2019,

This epiphany is so welcome! Great that your daughter will actively help out now. It is a win indeed!

Laura Lister-Mensh (Laura Collins), in one of her posts did mention that ED kids are more vulnerable.

It also sounds like your d likes to turn to you for advice, wherever she may be staying.

All the best,
Mum's Kitchen
