Eat and drink safely

Many people suffer from an upset stomach or diarrhoea because of something they have eaten or drunk abroad.
More seriously, cholera, typhoid and hepatitis A can be contracted from contaminated food and water. Gourmet open sandwich. © Berit Myrekrok/Getty Images

Don’t get ill

  • always wash your hands after going to the toilet, before handling food and before eating
  • use bottled water if you have any doubts about the quality of the water. Check the seals are unbroken
  • boil water or filter it using a water 'purifier' – this is more effective than sterilisation tablets
  • eat fresh, thoroughly cooked food that is still piping hot
  • avoid food that has been kept warm

You should avoid

  • ice used in drinks and used to keep food cool, unless you’re sure it is made from treated or chlorinated water
  • uncooked fruit and vegetables, unless you can peel them yourself
  • food exposed to flies
  • ice cream from unreliable sources, such as kiosks or mobile traders
  • milk, cheese and other dairy products unless they are pasteurised and have been properly refrigerated
  • undercooked or raw seafood or shellfish
  • excessive amounts of alcohol
