Doctors and nutritionists always remind us to eat more fruit and vegetables, especially in autumn and winter, when the weather is dry and cold. Fruit and vegetables contain several varieties of vitamins which can strength our immune system. This is extremely important at a time when Influenza A H1N1 virus is spreading so crazily.  But some of you may ask: what if I am particular about food? How can I eat more kinds of food? Don’t worry, the creative student residents participating in the Healthy Snacks Competition in March 2008 and 2009, organised by the Student Residence Office , have already prepared nutritious and easily-made food to fulfill all your needs.
