10 rules of nutrition in the heat

10 rules of nutrition in the heat from the chief state sanitary doctor in the Lviv region - Natalia Ivanchenko.

It's hot outside, and I'm going on about my own. About nutrition. I almost don't want to eat, but not everyone).

So what to eat? The main goal is not to get sick)

In summer, the frequency of acute intestinal infections increases in proportion to the rise in ambient temperature. Lviv. Evening. +30.

Rule 1. If something is cooked, keep it outside the refrigerator for no longer than 2 hours. The less the better. Not cooling down? We put it in a container with water, we help the dish cool down faster before putting it in the refrigerator.

Rule 2. Prepare immediately before use and DO NOT EAT on the second day - salads, especially those dressed with sour cream or mayonnaise (the latter should be kept to a minimum).

Rule 3. If possible, avoid cakes and cakes with cream (especially custard and cream).

Rule 4. WE DO NOT BUY meat and confectionery products in places of unauthorized trade, without refrigerators.

Rule 5. Minimize fatty dishes.

Rule 6. Thoroughly wash vegetables and fruits before consumption. We use water of guaranteed quality for washing (not from a river, lake or unknown source!!!).

Rule 7. Avoid multi-component dishes.

Rule 8. Ready-to-eat shish kebab should not be placed in a container in which raw shish kebab was previously stored in marinade, even if it has been well washed).

Rule 9. We do not take perishable products on the trip! Don't forget to wash your hands!

Rule 10. Ice cream! It is possible and necessary, but in moderation, after all, these are sweets that are easily absorbed by the body, however, ice cream allows, they say, to avoid depression!

So, safe heat and active consumption of safe liquids!

Nataliya Ivanchenko is the general director of the Lviv Regional Center for Disease Control and Prevention of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine
