Disclosure: This post on Dietician Tips to Avoid the Flu Spike was sponsored by Loblaws. As always, all opinions are my own.
A while back, I shared some of my favourite ways to avoid the Fall Flu Spike. Today, I’m going to go a little more in-depth. Last week I met with Whitney, the in-house Loblaws Dietitian in Calgary. During our chat, she shared some of her tips for healthy living and avoiding the flu.

Question: What is the most important diet change that can help us all avoid the flu?
Healthy eating is important all year round. Unfortunately, there is no one food that will solve all our problems and protect us from the flu. It’s not that easy. We have to focus on the big picture. In the Fall, we are back to work, back to school and the weather is colder so we are inside more (with the germs) and not getting as much exercise.
