Travel and nutrition tips

Air travel is dehydrating and may cause jet lag. But you can reduce the impact by:

  • Packing nutritious snacks to avoid the salty airplane snacks
  • Drink at least 250mL each hour on a flight
  • Avoid coffee, tea, and caffeinated beverages

Travel hygiene tips:

  • Frequent hand hygiene is important! Wash hands before preparing, handling, serving, or eating food.
  • Avoid touching your face, mouth, nose, and eyes with unwashed hands.
  • Practice proper cough and sneeze etiquette. Cover your mouth and nose with your arm to reduce the spread of germs.
  • If you use a tissue, remember to dispose of it as soon as possible and wash your hands afterwards.
