New applications

We are continuing to process applications to join and re-join the Register. Most individuals shouldn’t notice any significant interruptions to our services, but with AfN staff working from home we do require applications to be submitted electronically and there may be minor delays to our processing, which we will do our very best to keep to a minimum.

Eating for health during the covid-19 outbreak

There are many myths about what we should be eating to stay well during the current Covid-19 outbreak, but for most people the important thing will continue to be to eat a healthy, balanced diet and maintain a healthy weight. The key aspects of a healthy diet remain the same:

  • Eat 5 portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables a day
  • Eat higher fibre carbohydrates – such as bread, rice, pasta and potatoes with their skin on
  • Eat some beans, eggs, pulses fish, meat or other vegetarian alternatives
  • Eat some dairy – choosing lower fat where possible
  • Eat foods high in salt, saturated fat and free sugars in small amounts and infrequently
  • Have 6-8 glasses of fluid each day
