Right now, when it comes to nutrition, you might feel like you’re just “winging it.” As we all continue to practice social distancing to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, normal eating habits have changed in a lot of ways:
- Your pantry may be filled with shelf-stable staples
- Eating out isn’t an option – only takeout and delivery
- More meals must be cooked at home
- Your appetite may have increased or decreased
- Some are struggling with emotional or boredom eating
