Amidst the upsurge in the Covid-19 pandemic, the United Nations, UN, Food and Agricultural Organisation, FAO, has issued 7 key guidelines to maintain a healthy diet.

The tips contained in a 47-second video recently published on the FAO website, succinctly explained diet practices to inculcate, in order to remain healthy.

According to the FAO, during this Covid-19 pandemic, we can maintain a healthy diet by observing the following:

* Eating variety of foods from all food groups

* Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables

* Consuming a diet rich in whole grains, nuts, and healthy fat

* Watching our intake of fats, sugar, and salt

* Practicing good food hygiene

* Drinking water regularly, and

* Limiting consumption of alcohol.

“During this difficult time, we can all do things to maintain a healthy lifestyle”, the FAO said.

The pandemic has led to the death of over 80,000 people, and the clampdown on significant events and businesses globally, thereby making countries implement the stay-at-home policy, as a strategic measure to curb its spread.

Globally, as at Saturday morning, over 200 countries across the world have recorded at least 1 case of the coronavirus

Meanwhile, the number of infected people continues to increase globally, and now stands at over 1 million.
