From soaked almonds to khichdi: Govt suggests diet plan for those recovering from Covid-19


The government on Saturday shared a five-step sample meal plan for people who are recovering from coronavirus disease (Covid-19). It said that the plan will boost immunity and help people recover from post virus fatigue.

The government added that a breakfast must include ragi dosa or a bowl of porridge. Jaggery and ghee are also recommended during or post lunch.

This comes amid a rising number of coronavirus cases in the country. India on Saturday registered the highest-single day spike in Covid-19 deaths at 4,187 while the new cases remained above the 400,000-mark for a third straight day at 401,078.

The five-step sample meal plan is as follows:

1. Start the day by consuming soaked almonds and raisins. Almonds are a rich source of protein and raisins provide a good amount of iron.

2. For breakfast, ragi dosa or a bowl of porridge is the best option.

3. Jaggery and ghee recommended during or post lunch or have this nutritious combination along with roti.
