National Nutrition Day 2020

The  National Nutrition Day (DNN) is an  initiative organized annually by the Spanish Federation of Nutrition, Food and Dietetic Societies (FESNAD), in collaboration with the Spanish Agency for Consumption, Food Safety and Nutrition (AECOSAN) and with the support from the pharmaceutical and food industries.

The Polytechnic Library and Health Sciences organizes an exceptional online bibliographic exhibition on the subject of nutrition in times of confinement. This year 2020 in which Covid-19 has broken into our lives, and due to a drastic and sudden reduction in our daily physical activity, we recommend a diet as healthy and healthy as possible.

We have selected for you and you a series of books with all kinds of recommendations, recipes and guidelines to follow, limiting highly caloric and processed foods, which can be physically consulted when the library reopens its doors. Being at home most of the time gives rise to the temptation to snack between meals, and it is estimated that there may be, in some cases, an increase in body weight of 3 to 5 kg. in a single month. Vegetables and fruits are a good ally when it comes to fighting moments of anxiety or boredom. For this it is very important to plan the weekly menu to stay at home and go out and buy the essential time.

We have also prepared a visual document, Take care of yourself, which together with some very practical healthy eating resources that can be very useful in your day-to-day life, includes other areas to which we must pay attention if we want to put into practice a healthy lifestyle : exercise, relaxation, active leisure, nature, resources to quit tobacco or taking care of the Covid ...

We have made them easy and accessible so that you can include them in your daily routines. Don't miss them and take good care of yourself.
