Food is the fuel your body needs for everything you do, including breathing.

Your body uses food for energy as a part of a process called ‘metabolism’. This is when food and oxygen are changed into energy and carbon dioxide.

Eating healthily also helps the body fight infections. Chest infections are illnesses that can be dangerous for people with PCD.

You can reduce your risk of infection by eating well.
