We have been doing several things, diet is most important, we make sure our little one gets plenty of citrus fruits and actually blueberries are suppose to ward cold and flu off as well so fruit is great! We also wash our hands a lot as well and make sure we clean our sons hands with hand wipes after he plays at a park, etc. We have found that a warm mist vaporizer works well too and we also add Lavender oil to the vaporizer for a relaxing and great nights sleep! Bundle them up as well on those very cold days outside:)))) We will fight this winter for sure! I am happy to say our son is 21 months old and he never has had a cold or flu, just a runny nose from sinus!

A cool mist humidifier, we've had one rrunning in both our kids rooms (4yr old and 10 months old) since november (no colds yet) and if they do get one it helps keep nose clear and helps prevent a viral infection (clear boogers) from becoming a secondary bacterial one (yellow boogers)
