Feeding Essential Care Workers; Healthy Snacks on the Front Line

Our health care worker’s, are on the front line, working in areas such as Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and need our help. An ICU nurse from one of Melbourne’s major hospitals, reached out asking for my suggestions on healthy snacking to share with her coworkers. I was so pleased to be asked and it is the least I can do to help those working so hard to keep us well. I was equally happy to hear they are taking care of themselves. For all of us in other areas of work, working, school or just staying safe at home healthy snacking is important for our health too. This is looking like a marathon event ahead, not a sprint so here are my healthy snacking ideas to get us through.

We certainly do want to support our immune system, but that is different to boosting it. If the immune system is overactive it can be damaging to our body. What we want to do, is support the immune system to work in balance and we can eat fresh everyday nutritious food to do this, nothing fancy required.
