Food to Avoid When You Are Sick

When you are sick it is important to tweak your diet and only eat foods that will help boost your immune system. When you are experiencing a cold or flu, stay away from sugar, artificial sweeteners, and processed foods. Instead, reach for nutrient-rich foods that will help you feel better such as broth based soups, citrus fruits, ginger, and bananas.*

Sometimes a bad cold or flu can leave you without an appetite. Still, staying nourished and hydrated is key to feeling better. If you don’t have an appetite when sick, try to commit to eating small portions of healthy food throughout the day.
