Flu Diet: What to Eat & What NOT to Eat to Avoid Getting Sick
It's true that you can get the flu any time of the year, but the season typically lasts from early October to May, with the peak season between December and February.

It's estimated that up to 63 million Americans come down with the flu, and up to 200,000 Americans are hospitalized.

In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the flu is the number-one reason people take time off work.

If you're someone who doesn't like to get the flu shot, or if you have already but are worried about the vaccine failing like it did back in the 2014-2015 season, you may want to consider eating certain foods to help boost your immune system and keep you healthy.

What foods should you consider eating to help prevent getting the flu?

Listen in as Janet Little, CN, shares the foods you should be eating (and avoiding) to help you from getting sick this flu and cold season.
