Old wives tale “Carrots are good for your eyes”?

Vital Vision Veggies!!


Were you ever told as a child that carrots  were good for your eyes?  Turns out it’s not just an old wives tale!

Omega 3, carotenoids and vitamins A, C and E are essential for maintaining eye health.

Omega 3 is not produced by the body, so must be consumed.  Carotenoids are antioxidants that protect the retina by absorbing harmful blue light.  They can be found in brightly coloured vegetables.

Some of the best foods for your eyes are oily fish, curly kale, spinach, carrots, tomatoes, broccoli, nuts and seeds, red pepper, red meats, kiwi fruit.

So no excuses… eat up!!!
