Useful information on healthy nutrition

  • COVID-19: Tips for healthy nutrition under current situation

    The indication given by the authorities invites the elderly population to stay at home as much as possible to reduce the chances of Coronavirus infection. Experts recommended that you keep enough around worth of meals, so two weeks' worth of supplies is a better idea in case of long response times. That's why we prepared the LIFANA tips on how to continue to follow the recommendations to stay healthy at home.
