The British Nutrition Foundation (BNF) has issued new nutrition and immunity resources to help people of every age discover which nutrients – and the foods they are found in – are important to help support a healthy immune system.
Interest in nutrition and diet concerning immunity has increased due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but misconceptions and confusion are common.
The BNF recommends that “wherever possible, vitamin and mineral intakes should come from a nutritionally balanced and diverse diet. It is also essential that taking supplements or certain foods that may be promoted as ‘immune boosting’ are not seen as effective alternatives to recognised measures that help to prevent infections spreading like hand washing and social distancing, or to vaccination.”
The detailed charts cover Nutrition and Immunity for Children (under 10); Teens and Adults; and Older Adults. View and DOWNLOAD THEM HERE.
