In brief: Play and explore
Just as you can't read without being exposed to words, the immune system needs exposure -- yes, this includes microscopic germs that you can't see -- to learn and build defenses.
So, fill their tummies with a healthy diet and let them play with other children and explore their surroundings. Not only will this enrich their minds, it will make their bodies stronger, inside and out. And vaccinate.
