Nutrition Advice for COVID 19  - A Good Diet is Important

The PPG chairs would like to stay connected with you during this period as we self-isolate.

We would like to send you information to help you stay healthy and active.

The first subject is our food and drink. The food and drink we consume is critical to our

physical and mental health.

The first feature is written by Isabel Hooley, BSc, PgDip, HCPC, HEE Wessex QI Fellow Dietician at Dorset County Hospital Nutrition and Dietetics Service. 

It is well worth reading and if you think some of your neighbours or friends in Weymouth &

Portland would benefit from this advice please forward it to them.

We will try to stay connected with you during this crisis via emails and the internet. Please

remember the NHS cares for us and the PPGs are trying to support our local NHS.

Stay safe.
