Advice from the British Dietetic Association:
“There are many nutrients that are involved with the normal functioning of the immune system and therefore we would encourage maintaining a health balanced diet in order to support immune function (include copper, folate, iron, selenium, zinc and vitamins A, B6, B12, C and D). We would therefore not recommend any food over another but instead encourage eating a variety of foods to maintain a health balanced diet”
Advice from Food Standards Scotland:
“There is currently no evidence that food is a source of coronavirus (COVID-19) and it is very unlikely it can be transmitted through the consumption of food”
Support for healthy eating
We would encourage everyone to try and eat a healthy balanced diet where possible, but appreciate that this may be a challenge at this time. There are a number of websites that provide advice, support and tips on healthy eating.
