Cold and flu: What to eat and drink for a speedy recovery

Whether you’re fighting a cold, flu or feel run down, Viva!’s Veronika Powell reveals the best foods to boost your health

Fruit and veg smoothies


You need to drink to stay hydrated and, if you’re not hungry, the best way to get some healthy vitamins, energygiving carbohydrates, disease-busting antioxidants and water down you is to make a simple smoothie. Use any fruit or vegetables you like, as long as they are fresh or frozen. Avoid preserved fruit and pasteurised fruit juices – they’ve lost most of their nutrition value and won’t give your body what it needs.

Citrus fruit is great for vitamin C, bananas for minerals and sweetness, berries for lots of antioxidants, green leafy vegetables for vitamins and minerals and apples and pears for vitamins and antioxidants. You can add a spoonful of nut butter or tahini for added nutrition and a chunk of ginger to clear those airways.
