Ugandans Need To Eat Organic Foods To Fight Covid-19

Ugandans have been urged to eat organic foods to boost their immunity on top of following protective measures against Covid-19.

These include washing of hands regularly, observing social distance and wearing face masks the right way.

According to ecology and nutrition experts, organic foods are natural medicines that help boost the body’s immune system. This helps make the body more resistant to diseases.

In their food guide book titled: ‘’A mini Barefoot Guide Agroecology Series, Surviving COVID-19, The Neglected Remedy’’; they recognized the importance of indigenous foods towards better health.

Stella Grace Lutalo is the Country Coordinator of The Participatory Ecological Land Use Management (PELUM). She said with Covid-19, people need to eat a variety of nutritious, wholesome food that is produced without heavy use of toxic sprays and additional chemicals.

The need to include good nutrition as one way of boosting immunity against Covid.

Furthermore, she noted that authorities have largely neglected the importance of good nutrition in all the information shared about Covid-19 in all countries.

She stressed how the government must include these messages of food in their communications for the better.

Lutalo further noted that natural indigenous foods are good at strengthening the body’s immune system. This helps the system to reduce the severity of the virus and help to heal in case one is to get the virus.

‘’It is very crucial for people to know what they can easily consume than rushing to collect medicines. We all know that a variety of natural foods is medicine. We cannot predict what will happen with this virus, as you see the variants keep on changing, but whatever happens, we are better off if we eat healthy food,’’ she added.

She explained that these organic foods also help to lower the number of non-communicable diseases. These include diabetes, high blood pressure among others. It’s poor feeding that causes many of these.
