Berry Good Food
Berries are berry good for you. They are sweet, small and snack-like, but easy to underestimate. Research shows that these tiny treats pack a powerful nutritional punch. Strawberries are super high in vitamin C!
- STRAWBERRIES: Super high vitamin C! You can actually meet the recommended daily allowance (RDA) by eating fewer than 10 per day.
- BLUEBERRIES: Super berries! They were one of the first berries to be officially recognized for their antioxidant properties. Recent studies indicate that other berries (including raspberries and blackberries) are also rich in anti-oxidants that may help prevent cancer.
- RASPBERRIES: A food source of fiber; one cup and you've met a third of your daily requirement.
- BLACKBERRIES: One cup provides a third of the RDA for fiber and one half of the RDA for vitamin C.
