Leaders in the nutrition field agree that our diet plays an important role in our battle to overcome this COVID-19 crisis. At a time when we are all sheltering at home, uncertain of the future, and venturing out only for the essentials — which includes buying food — it’s vital that we eat in ways that encourage adequate intake of essential vitamins and minerals and do not allow for undernutrition, which can weaken our body’s immune defenses.
Several micronutrients, such as vitamins C and D, zinc, and selenium can help enable a healthy immune response.

Making the right choices can make us stronger, at a time when we cannot afford to be weaker.
