One Student's Social Distancing Diet Tips

One Student's Social Distancing Diet Tips

Good for Mind, Body and Wallet

A pandemic changes a lot of people’s way of life. We are inside our houses most of the time to avoid unnecessary contact with others to keep ourselves safe. But apart from social distancing, are we keeping our body systems safe? This, of course, has a lot to do with our meal consumption, that whether we like it or not has changed too. Our access to most of the food we consumed before the pandemic struck is now limited.

Sylvia C.A. Effendi, an IBA student of marketing and communications at Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences, adjusted a few things in her diet in order to get herself into a healthier way of eating, besides being easier on the pocket, while working from home over the past three weeks. One of Sylvia's favourite meals is breakfast. For this she opts for fruit, müesli and nuts mixed in yoghurt with a bit of honey.

The nature of Van der Zande's work is such that it cannot really be done from home – doing maintenance jobs at Wittenborg facilities, occasionally assisting students who are staying in the university's student accommodation, picking up mail, visiting the warehouse and various other tasks.
