The Mediterranean diet, which has at its heart fresh fruit and vegetable produce, nuts, whole grains, and healthy fats, continues to be celebrated for its benefits for consumers and the planet.
Now more than ever, it is important to maintain a healthy diet, as what we eat and drink can affect our ability to prevent as well as recover from infections
New evidence also suggests that access to healthy foods can lower obesity rates and in response to the pandemic this is increasingly important.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) advises adults to adhere to a Mediterranean diet to help them stay well. Oily fish forms part of the world-renowned Mediterranean diet, which has been hailed for its brain health elements.
