1. Kiwifruit
Kiwis are high in vitamin C, which is an important immune-boosting nutrient, as well as in vitamin E, which, helps increase your body’s T-cell count, Marber says. Try the sweet green fruit in a smoothie (it pairs well with strawberries and spinach). Eating kiwis is a great (and delicious) way to strengthen your immune system. They are high in vitamin C, which is an important immune-boosting nutrient, as well as in vitamin E, which, helps increase your body’s T-cell count, says nutritionist and author Ian Marber. Try the sweet green fruit in a smoothie – it pairs well with strawberries and spinach.

2. Blueberries
A classic antioxidant-rich berry, blueberries are easily available frozen for a fraction of the out-of-season price of fresh ones. Marber says they’re high in vitamin C and in vitamin A, which is involved with antibody production. Thaw frozen berries overnight and add them your morning cereal.

3. Papaya
This tropical fruit is rich in beta-carotene, says Marber, which converts into vitamin A in the body. Eat it sliced and topped with fresh lime juice.

4. Strawberries
This popular spring berry is rich in both vitamins A and C, says Marber, and the seeds also contain minerals that support immune action. Fresh sliced strawberries make an excellent topping for a spinach salad.
