Milk is called complete food. The excess presence of calcium in the milk makes bones stronger. Due to the variety of milk in the market (full cream, toned, double toned and skimmed milk), people get confused about which milk is better for them.

But if you are allergic to cow or buffalo milk, then there is a confusion for you that which alternative should be included in the diet.  A glass of milk daily keeps your bones and teeth strong and will also increase your immunity in the corona period. A well known Dietitian tells about the variety of milk and when and why to use it.

How to choose milk according to need

Cow's milk: In cow's milk, there is more calcium than other milk. there is 88% of water and protein and good fat and vitamin-D. In cow milk, calcium is found more than other milk. There is  omega-3 fatty acid in it which is beneficial for heart and diabetes patients. In some  research it has been found that this metabolism corrects blood sugar level by correcting it.

Soy Milk: If you are allergic to cow milk, you can take soy milk. It has much protein content. It contains high amount of calcium and iron. The nine types of amino acids present in the milk, improves the immune system of the body. This increases your ability to fight against diseases. Do not take too much sugar with this milk.

Skimmed Milk: If you have rising cholesterol and blood pressure, include this milk in the diet.  This milk is good to take specially after the age of 35. It contains only 0.3 percent fat, so if you want to reduce weight, then you can include it in the diet. Curd or buttermilk can be prepared with this milk and is equally beneficial.

Toned milk: This is a low-fat milk which reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke. Persons who do not want to lose weight and want only to stay fit, they can drink double toned milk. It has a very low fat content. Due to the low amount of fat in it, the risk of heart attack and stroke is also reduced. It is rich in Vitamin-D which helps calcium to get absorbed into the body easily.

Coconut Milk: This milk contains high levels of nutrients, hence it's nutrition value is quite high. The milk has much fiber content and has vitamin B, C, E, iron, sodium, magnesium, phosphorus. Since it is lactose-free, people who are allergic to milk can take it. Having low-cholesterol, it prevents heart diseases.

Take Precautionary Measures at home

Healthy Diet

Eating a healthy diet is very important during the COVID-19 pandemic. What we eat and drink can affect our body’s ability to prevent, fight and recover from infections.
While no foods or dietary supplements can prevent or cure COVID-19 infection, healthy diets are important for supporting immune systems. Good nutrition can also reduce the likelihood of developing other health problems, including obesity, heart disease, diabetes and some types of cancer.
For babies, a healthy diet means exclusive breastfeeding in the first six months, with the introduction of nutritious and safe foods to complement breastmilk from age 6 months to 2 years and beyond. For young children, a healthy and balanced diet is essential for growth and development. For older people, it can help to ensure healthier and more active lives.

Tips for maintaining a healthy diet

1. Eat a variety of food, including fruits and vegetables
• Every day, eat a mix of whole-grains like wheat, maize and rice, legumes like lentils and beans, plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables , with some foods from animal sources (e.g. meat, fish, eggs and milk).
• Choose wholegrain foods like unprocessed maize, millet, oats, wheat and brown rice when you can; they are rich in valuable fibre and can help you feel full for longer.
• For snacks, choose raw vegetables, fresh fruit, and unsalted nuts.

2. Cut back on salt

• Limit salt intake to 5 grams (equivalent to a teaspoon) a day.
• When cooking and preparing foods, use salt sparingly and reduce use of salty sauces and condiments (like soy sauce, stock or fish sauce).
• If using canned or dried food, choose varieties of vegetables, nuts and fruit, without added salt and sugars.
• Remove the salt shaker from the table, and experiment with fresh or dried herbs and spices for added flavor instead.
• Check the labels on food and choose products with lower sodium content.

3. Eat moderate amounts of fats and oils
• Replace butter, ghee and lard with healthier fats like olive, soy, sunflower or corn oil when cooking.
• Choose white meats like poultry and fish which are generally lower in fats than red meat; trim meat of visible fat and limit the consumption of processed meats.
• Select low-fat or reduced-fat versions of milk and dairy products.
• Avoid processed, baked and fried foods that contain industrially produced trans-fat.
• Try steaming or boiling instead of frying food when cooking.

4. Limit sugar intake
• Limit intake of sweets and sugary drinks such as fizzy drinks, fruit juices and juice drinks, liquid and powder concentrates, flavoured water, energy and sports drinks, ready-to-drink tea and coffee and flavoured milk drinks.
• Choose fresh fruits instead of sweet snacks such as cookies, cakes and chocolate. When other dessert options are chosen, ensure that they are low in sugar and consume small portions.
• Avoid giving sugary foods to children. Salt and sugars should not be added to complementary foods given to children under 2 years of age, and should be limited beyond that age.

5. Stay hydrated: Drink enough water
Good hydration is crucial for optimal health. Whenever available and safe for consumption, tap water is the healthiest and cheapest drink. Drinking water instead of sugar-sweetened beverages is a simple way to limit your intake of sugar and excess calories.

6. Avoid hazardous and harmful alcohol use
Alcohol is not a part of a healthy diet. Drinking alcohol does not protect against COVID-19 and can be dangerous. Frequent or excessive alcohol consumption increases your immediate risk of injury, as well as causing longer-term effects like liver damage, cancer, heart disease and mental illness. There is no safe level of alcohol consumption.

7. Breastfeed babies and young children
Breast-milk is the ideal food for infants. It is safe, clean and contains antibodies which help protect against many common childhood illnesses. Babies should be breastfed exclusively during the first 6 months of life, as breast milk provides all the nutrients and fluids they need.
• From 6 months of age, breast milk should be complemented with a variety of adequate, safe and nutrient-dense foods. Breastfeeding should continue under babies at 2 years of age or beyond.
Women with COVID-19 can breastfeed if they wish to do so and should take infection prevention and control measures. Please see Q&A on breastfeeding and COVID-19

Tips for Food Safety during COVID-19
There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread through contact with food or food packaging. COVID-19 is generally thought to be spread from person to person. However, it’s always important to practice good hygiene when handling food to prevent any food-borne illnesses. 
Follow WHO’s Five keys to safer food:
  1. Keep clean
  2. Separate raw and cooked
  3. Cook thoroughly
  4. Keep food at safe temperatures
  5. Use safe water and raw materials.

 WHO says about physical activity at home and stay healthy : 

The COVID-19 pandemic means that many of us are staying at home  and sitting down more than we usually do. It’s hard for a lot of us to do the sort of exercise we normally do. It’s even harder for people who don’t usually do a lot of physical exercise.

But at a time like this, it’s very important for people of all ages and abilities to be as active as possible. WHO’s Be Active campaign aims to help you do just that - and to have some fun at the same time.

Remember - Just taking a short break from sitting, by doing 3-4 minutes of light intensity physical movement, such as walking or stretching, will help ease your muscles and improve blood circulation and muscle activity.

Regular physical activity benefits both the body and mind. It can reduce high blood pressure, help manage weight and reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and various cancers - all conditions that can increase susceptibility to COVID-19.

It also improves bone and muscle strength and increases balance, flexibility and fitness. For older people, activities that improve balance help to prevent falls and injuries.

Regular physical activity can help give our days a routine and be a way to stay in contact with family and friends. It’s also good for our mental health - reducing the risk of depression, cognitive decline and delay the onset of dementia - and improve overall feelings

How much physical activity is recommended for your age group?
WHO has recommendations on the amount of physical activity people of all ages should do to benefit their health and well being.

Infants under 1 year of age
• All infants should be physically active several times a day.
• For those not yet mobile, this includes at least 30 minutes in prone position (tummy time), as floor-based play, spread throughout the day while awake.

Children under 5 years of age
• All young children should spend at least 180 minutes a day in a variety of types of physical activities at any intensity
• 3-4 year old children should spend at least 60 minutes of this time in moderate- to vigorous-intensity physical activity

Children and adolescents aged 5-17 years
• All children and adolescents should do at least 60 minutes a day of moderate to vigorous-intensity physical activity
• This should include activities that strengthen muscle and bone, at least 3 days per week
• Doing more than 60 minutes of physical activity daily will provide additional health benefits

Adults aged over 18 years
• All adults should do at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity throughout the week, or at least 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity throughout the week.
• For additional health benefits, adults should increase their moderate-intensity physical activity to 300 minutes per week, or equivalent.
• For developing and maintaining musculoskeletal health, muscle-strengthening activities involving major muscle groups should be done on 2 or more days a week
• In addition, older adults with poor mobility should do physical activity to enhance balance and prevent falls on 3 or more days per week.
