I think this is something the parents need to worry about, not you as auntie. I hope that's not offensive, i would talk with the parents first before worrying about it.

I take Elderberry and give it to ds (2.5) when he has a cold. It certainly doesn't harm, I think it helps but don't have science to back it.
