Nutritional resources for COVID-19

For each of us, the COVID-19 pandemic has been a significant personal and professional experience.

It has been a pandemic of many phases. Our collective energy and attention has been drawn towards managing one set of priorities, before moving to the next.

Throughout, Education in Nutrition has been committed to responding to our profession’s needs as they emerge.

We’ve looked at optimising nutrition for immune function and delivering nutrition therapy on COVID wards; addressed practical and emotion challenges of eating during lockdown, including the spike of eating disorder presentations; looking now to the disproportionate impact experienced by low socioeconomic communities and the ongoing challenges of living with long COVID

We’ve collated Education in Nutrition’s Nutritional resources for COVID-19 below.
