Keeping Well and Warm

Food helps to keep you warm

  • Eat at least one hot meal a day
  • Have plenty of hot drinks throughout the day and one before bedtime
  • Eat fresh fruits and vegetables everyday
  • Keep a supply of basic food for the days when you cannot get to the shops or do not feel like cooking
  • When making dinner, cook some extra food which you can freeze for another meal
  • Tinned or frozen foods and packets of soup are healthy options to keep in stock
