A guide to your vitamin intake
If you’re looking to increase your daily vitamin intake, we’ve got some tips for the fruits and vegetables that’ll help to give you a vitamin boost. Most of us feel we probably aren’t getting enough from our diets alone, and many of us don’t really know what vitamins we need the most.
So, vitamins A and C are key for giving our immune systems a boost, promoting a healthier heart, supporting healthy cognitive brain function and providing the body with natural antioxidants which in turn helps to protect us from diseases.
10 of the best foods to help us get vitamin A are:
- Butternut squash
- Sweet potato
- Red peppers
- Pink Grapefruit
10 of the best foods to help us get vitamin C are:
- Kiwi Fruit
- Bell peppers
As you can see from the lists, the foods that contain the best amounts of Vitamin A and C are colourful fruit and vegetables. It is important to store your fruit and vegetables properly so that they stay fresh for a long time. Making use of the crisper drawer inside your fridge freezer is the best way to keep your salad leaves and vegetables fresh and tasty. New drawers have innovative, three colour technology that simulates the natural, 24 hour cycle of the sun.
Enjoy crunchy fresh salads, stir fries and freshly squeezed juice or smoothies. There are so many ways to get the goodness into you and your kids!
