Son is 2y old, never add salt to food, also boil bottled water, do he needs sodium? Is it dangerous not to add any salt?

Easy to check: Many foods have salt naturally and added salt is unnecessary. Water is water, it doesn't need salt. If the kid gets enough salt from his natural food intake, you do not need to add it. A simple blood test can be done at the doctor's office to verify a proper salt level in the kid's blood. If he is growing, developing & playing like other kids, he's likely okay. ...Read more

Why does my five year old have a boil on her upper thigh? I give her multivitamins, immune booster probiotics and a large variety of food..

It happens: Unfortunately, bug bites and other itchy things happen. When the kid scratches the area the skin may be opened further and any germ under the kids fingernail is planted in the wound.
