Our kitchens already have immunity boosting ingredients, says nutritionist Shinali Parikh


As the number of COVID-19 cases continue to rise, people are realising the importance of building immunity. From kadhaas to vitamin supplements, immunity boosting food and pills have become a rage now. Shinali Parikh, an Ahmedabad based nutritionis explains, “Although immunity booster drinks and pills have become a rage right now, I feel that immunity cannot be built in a day. We don’t have to look too far to find things that will help us build our immunity. Our kitchens already have all the necessary ingredients that help build immunity like , seeds, garlic and many more. The pandemic has made us realise the importance of eating healthy and eating immunity boosting food, but building immunity is a gradual process.

In terms of healthy eating trends, people will slowly realise the importance of eating healthy but I don’t see any drastic changes in the food habits of Amdavadis.”
