Staying healthy abroad (food & water)
If you are in a hot country you can help reduce the risk of becoming unwell by ensuring you don’t stay in the sun for long periods and always wearing a hat and sunscreen. Wherever you are it’s important to keep hydrated so drink plenty of water and if you’re in a bar remember that alcohol measures can be larger than in the UK.
If you have a food allergy, ask for information about ingredients before eating.
Always wash your hands before preparing or eating food, after handling money and after going to the toilet. In case there’s no water available it’s a good idea to keep some hand wash wipes on you.
