Welcome to the section of the Nutrition and COVID-19 recovery knowledge hub designed for those working with people recovering from COVID-19 infection.
This includes all health and social care professionals and people working in the third sector (voluntary and community organisations, charities, self-help and community groups, social enterprises etc.).
If you work in any of these roles you may be in a position to notice nutritional problems and be a trusted source of information.
This site will help you provide appropriate advice, understand when you should seek further advice from a dietician or other registered nutritional expert, and provide tools to help you deliver high quality nutritional care. You can also signpost your clients to the pages designed for the public.
There are still many gaps in research on dietary advice, nutritional supplements, nutrition support, phytomedicine (herbal medicine), food insecurity (disruption of food intake or eating patterns due to lack of money and other resources) (1), quarantine-related behaviour and weight changes (2).
Long-term nutritional effects of COVID-19 are generally unknown and need to be studied in the aftermath of the pandemic.
