6 Items

Dear contributors,

Nutrition has a vital role in supporting, strengthening the immune system and maintaining proper immune function. The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has put a spotlight on the important role of nutrition in supporting the immune system relative to viruses.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic will have global effects on people and their nutrition, wellbeing, health and mental status, economies and food systems. A great challenge is going on as to how to combat COVID-19.

This knowledge hub aims to be a resource for all members of the SUN Movement to get informed about COVID-19 developments, at large. It also sheds light on important links between COVID-19 and nutrition, hunger, health and food systems – by bringing together important updates, guidance, articles and opinion pieces, in its initial stage. Nutrition can’t wait!

This special issue will provide cutting-edge and timely topical research on managing and overcoming the impacts of the global Covid-19 pandemic,

Physical and nutritional wellbeing. These papers will provide research that concerns nutritional wellbeing (access and availability), physical activity and wellbeing, health promotion and wellness (e.g., when quarantined).
