Happy Eat Your Vegetables Day!

Essential vitamins and minerals for your teeth

Did you know that today is Eat Your Vegetables Day? As a kid, it was probably impossible for your mom to get you to eat vegetables. They were yucky!

Beta-carotene, a type of vitamin A that gives these foods their orange hue, helps the retina and other parts of the eye to functional effectively.

Several other vitamins and minerals are essential for healthy eyes. Green vegetables like spinach, contain powerful antioxidants that protect your retina.

Leafy greens also contain vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc and fiber. Kale is the best leafy green veggie you can go with.

Add Carrots on Eat Your Vegetables Day

Carrots are high in beta carotene and vitamin A. This vitamin plays an important role in vision by helping the surface of the eye and skin be an effective barrier to bacteria and viruses. Thus, reducing the risk of eye infections, respiratory problems and other diseases.
