Plan ahead

Before you shop for the self-isolation period:

  • Consider the foods your family likes, your food preparation methods and the time and energy you will have for preparing meals.
  • Think of the nutritional values: The healthiest meals emphasize whole grains, vegetables, and fruits, so serve them in the greatest amounts. Meat portions should be smaller.
  • Make a shopping list and stick with it. You’ll be less like to forget items or buy impulse items.
  • Go easy on the frozen options; most are high in sodium, fat, and calories.

  • Limit purchases of tempting foods like chips, sodas, cookies, and ice cream. They are high in empty calories and not good for your budget either.
