Unless you’ve been living under a rock, we’re pretty sure you’ve heard of COVID-19 and the extra precautions we should all be taking:

Stay at home. Telecommuting. Reduce social gatherings, even with extended family. Maintain social distancing. Practice good personal hygiene. Wipe groceries down when you get them.

For many, it’s meant having to work from home and while that may have been fun for a few days (I mean, meetings in pjs and Netflix between meetings!); if you’re anything like us, you’re missing community and the freedom to go to your fav cafes with friends without worrying about tables being distanced, standing behind yellow lines, or sharing food.

While the temptation to stock up on comfort food may be high, there’s plenty of evidence to also ramp up your healthy eating game. Hey, it’s all about balance! Eating certain foods may not prevent you from getting coronavirus, but you want to boost your immune system so that it’s strong enough to fight the virus if you do get exposed to it.

In a similar vein, you’ve probably also started to get slightly bored of cooking your own meals after that initial surge of excitement - well, you’re only human!

Given all that, we’ve rounded up our top local healthy food delivery and online grocery picks in Singapore - companies that are not only working hard to keep you nourished during this time, but also going the extra mile by putting some COVID related measures in place.
