Eating well to recover from COVID-19



Symptoms of COVID-19 can include cough, shortness of breath, muscle weakness, dry mouth and changes to taste and smell. These symptoms may make you feel tired, sick and stop you wanting to eat and drink as you normally would. It is important to get the most from the food you are eating, as good nutrition and exercise together can help with your recovery.

This video has been developed by dietitians to highlight the importance on nutrition in hospital. This information runs alongside our leaflet on how to boost your dietary intake, and further COVID-19 specific advice we have developed.
