How COVID-19 Has Impacted Our Food Habits
Here are 5 ways coronavirus will change how we eat:
1. More Home Cooking
Research says 32% of adults plan to eat at restaurants quite often. Various reasons can work behind it.

2. More Healthy Eating
As panic is there because of the spreadability of coronavirus, the interest in eating immunity-boosting foods have been increased. This will surely become a habit in the times to come.
3. More Food Safety
We all know that COVID-19 is contagious which has elevated the fear about food safety. So people are avoiding buying unsafe foods and instead picking sealed items or canned foods. This will help people stay away from food poisoning.
4. Less Exotic Food
People who are in love with exotic foods, especially meat will crave for less exotic meat. We all know that the Wuhan wet market in China is the probable origin of the virus and that is why, seafood or any other exotic meat which are widely available there, won't be longed by people anymore.
5. More Local Eating
The best part of changing food habits is the come-back of local food. With more consumers caring about the source of their food, local eating will flourish.
These sudden impact on eating habits due to coronavirus will bring a positive change in our overall lifestyle.
