7. Why is eating a balanced diet so important when recovering from being unwell?

Good nutrition can support and improve recovery by providing the body with the essential nutrition to repair and maintain functions of the body during and after periods of being unwell. Nutritional requirements may change during illness, so a consultation with dietitian can help you to understand changes in nutritional requirements and ensure that strategies are implemented to help meet your individual nutrition goals and improve recovery. If your healthcare professional has recommended that you take a nutritional supplement from the Fortisip range to aid your recovery, there are recipes to help you recover well too.
