How to avoid getting sick whilst on holiday

Unfortunately, it is impossible to completely prevent becoming ill whilst on holiday, particularly in relation to food poisoning if you are not in full control of your food and its preparation, but there are some simple tips that could be followed in order to reduce your risk.

Before leaving:

  • Try not to run around, increasing work load and stress, in the lead up to your holiday. Do everything you can to manage your stress levels.
  • Eat a healthy diet and fill up on foods and supplements that will help to boost the immune system. This could include fruit, vegetables, omega 3 oils and probiotics.
  • Ensure that you are getting enough Vitamin C, and take supplements if necessary.

On arrival:

  • When you arrive at your destination, drink lots of water and take it easy.
  • Eat regularly to keep blood sugar levels as constant as possible.
  • Throughout your break, try to drink at least two to three litres of bottled water a day.
  • Clean or wash your hands frequently, and certainly before eating or drinking, with either soap or a sanitiser.
  • Try to keep a similar type of routine to that at home.
  • Make sure that any cooked food you eat is piping hot and thoroughly cooked.
  • Where possible, steer clear of a buffet, but if this is not possible, try to avoid moist foods that are kept at room temperature or warmed up in particular sauces.
  • Choose fruit and vegetables that you can peel yourself, for example bananas and oranges.
  • Water used to wash salads may be contaminated. Wherever possible, avoid salads, unless you are able to wash it yourself in fresh water.
  • Avoid ice unless you are sure that it has been made from treated or chlorinated water.
  • If you are concerned about the local tap water, ensure that you only drink bottled water.
  • Before you drink from a can or bottle, wipe the area that will come into contact with either your drink or your mouth.
