Singapore hospital warns hotpot should not be eaten more than once a month, seafood and chicken broths among least healthy

It’s T-minus three days before we herald in red packets, prosperous wishes and everything else that’s associated with Chinese New Year.

And of course, that includes the quintessential hotpot.

The endless, endless, hotpot that comes hand in hand with the visiting we’ve got lined up.

Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love hotpot. In fact, I held onto my self-proclaimed title as a hotpot connoisseur for the longest time until a colleague kicked me off the throne when she revealed that she would indulge in a hotpot session every week.

But perhaps being less indulgent is for the better, considering how the boiling pot of joy isn’t exactly the healthiest thing around, surprisingly.

According to Singapore’s Mount Alvernia Hospital, we shouldn’t even be eating it more than “once or twice a month”, especially if we tend to make poor choices with regard to the soup and ingredients.
