The NICE has published useful information on nutrition during COVID-19. The changes we are witnessing may affect our eating habits and lifestyles even after the epidemic is over. A healthy diet is even more important at this time, and we will answer many of the questions you may have about this below.
Diet and health are closely linked. Diet is a behavioural factor that we can usefully change at this time if it has not supported our health. Even with restrictions on food access, ﬁnancial constraints and poorer cooking skills, we can put together healthy meals and eat more regularly. The situation we find ourselves in can therefore have a number of beneficial outcomes and opportunities.
To help you plan your diet, here are some simple recommendations and tips. We encourage you to stay alert and at least moderately physically active while following the recommendations to prevent coronavirus transmission. In addition to physical activity, a healthy diet and sufficient fluid intake are vital in strengthening or maintaining the immune system. By following the healthy eating recommendations we have prepared for you below, you can prevent the development of malnutrition or overnutrition in the long term and successfully prevent or manage certain chronic diseases. It is important that each of us, within our own means, makes the best possible choices for our own or our family’s diet in a way that supports and promotes health. In order to support good health in the population, including through good nutrition, the following is current and key information and advice on nutrition. Source
