Nutrition Tip | Eating well in Winter

​Staying healthy is on everyone's mind this Winter and one of the best ways to stay healthy is eating well.

While there are no magic foods (or supplements) that can stop you from getting a cold or flu, we know that eating a variety of different nutritious foods can help the immune system do its job. Nutrients known to support immune function are: Vitamin C, Vitamin A, folate and zinc. 

All you need is:

• ½ a red capsicum OR one orange to provide your daily vitamin C needs. 
• 1 cup of rockmelon or pumpkin to provide you with Vitamin A. 
•  ½ cup of cooked broccoli with your dinner for folate. 
• Load up on your baked beans, cashew nuts or lean red meat for zinc. 

The micronutrients in these foods make them far more effective than any supplement. 

Let food be thy medicine!!
