Planning your pantry during COVID-19 pandemic

Planning your pantry during COVID-19 pandemic

The Dietitians Association of Australia has put together a list of foods to help you prepare in the event you need to self-quarantine for 14 days.

In the event of needing to self-quarantine, it is important to have a plan.  Food items to consider:

  • Fruit:  Fresh fruit (choose those that last longer such as apples and citrus fruits), frozen fruits, dried fruit and canned varieties.
  • Vegetables: Fresh vegetables (choose those that last longer such as potatoes, onions, carrots, pumpkin and cabbage), frozen and canned vegetables.
  • Cans of soup
  • Protein sources:  canned fish, legumes, nuts and seeds (including nut butter), long-life milk (UHT or powdered).
  • Grains:  rice, pasta, quinoa, couscous, rolled oats and cereals.  Freeze bread and wraps.
  • Long-life sauces/herbs and spices: Relying on shelf-stable foods, can increase the sodium in our diet, as salt is used to preserve foods.  Having a range of herbs and spices on hand can help boost the flavour of foods without needing extra salt.
  • Foods for enjoyment: In a time of isolation and uncertainty, having foods that are a source of comfort, or a reminder of daily routine, can be beneficial for your mental health.  An example includes coffee.

It is also worth cooking a few extra meals, prepared and frozen in the freezer – if you were to fall ill – means you have a nutritious meal ready to go.

Ask our dietitian if you have any further questions at reception@dradib.com.au or make an appointment today.
