Fight Back During Cold & Flu Season

From Our Kitchen

Good nutrition plays an important role in maintaining a healthy immune system. Eating a variety of nutrient-rich foods can help you and your family stay well through this cold and flu season.

Here are a three simple tips to get you started on the right track:

1. Start the day with breakfast. A breakfast of whole grain cereal, milk, and 100% orange juice can supply 100% of your daily recommended vitamin C intake, 33% of daily calcium needs, and many other nutrients such as folate.

2. Strive to eat five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables each day. Opt for salads for lunch or with dinner. Choose mixed dishes that contain a lot of vegetables, like stir-frys. Enjoy fruit as a snack or in place of dessert.

3. Swap whole grains for refined grains. Consuming whole grains like brown rice, quinoa and whole-grain breads and cereals in place of refined products increases fiber intake and provides important antioxidants.

Beyond diet, proper hand-washing, regular exercise, and sufficient rest can also boost resistance to cold and flu bugs.
