P.E.I. dietictian offers tips for fending off the flu this season

SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. - The dreaded cold and clue season is on its way, and after last year’s severe season, the public is urged to so what they can to protect themselves from getting sick with the pesky virus.

“There are a number of simple, preventative measures you can take now to help protect yourself and your family from the flu,” said Angela Dawson, a registered dietician based out of the Atlantic Superstore in Summerside.

“It starts with a trip to the grocery store and a healthy diet to help keep your immune system in good working order.”

Dawson says people can get ahead of cold and flu season by stocking up early on foods that contain nutrients that contribute overall to immune health.

“It’s smart to make healthy food choices all year, but you may want to think about certain foods leading up to and during flu season, such as citrus fruits, beans and legumes, probiotics and nuts and seeds to get the nutrients you need,” she said.

She also advised that eating a variety of foods on a regular basis will help people and their families maintain good health.
