Yes, you are one of tens of thousands of people in Singapore who have come down with Covid-19.
The temptation is to order in, to snack while holed up in your room, or maybe to have a stiff drink or two.
If you want to feel better and recover, hold your horses. Dietitians say there are better food choices.
Three, from National University Polyclinics (NUP), Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH) and Changi General Hospital (CGH), advocate sticking to a balanced diet.
Dietitian Bernice Tan from NUP says: “We would still recommend that patients have a healthy balanced diet and encourage them to have meals which consist of whole grains, lean protein, vegetables and fruit, to boost energy and facilitate speedy recovery.
“However, they may not have much appetite due to the lack of energy and existing symptoms that can affect their usual food intake. The texture of food can be modified to help them eat better, especially if they still feel unwell.”
