There are a lot of naughty foods around the Christmas period, but check out the vitamins and goodness in this festive selection 😋
1. Roast Turkey - low in fat and rich in protein, especially if you discard the skin and choose the lighter meat.
2. Potatoes - good for Vitamin C, if roasting use vegetable oil rather than lard to reduce saturated fat intake.
3. Brussels Sprouts - an average serving (9 sprouts) provides half of our daily needs for folic acid and all of our Vitamin C.
4. Carrots - rich in beta-carotene, which is converted to Vitamin A in the body and acts as a potentially disease-beating anti-oxidant.
5. Christmas pudding - the dried fruit gives plenty of potassium, and a reasonable amount of iron and fibre.
6. Walnuts - rich in fibre, vitamins and essential fatty acids.
7. Ham - low in fat, a good source of protein, iron, zinc and B Vitamins and great for salad suppers.
8. Satsumas - each of these handy stocking fillers provides half our daily needs for Vitamin C.
9. Chestnuts - the only low fat nut in existence!
10. Dates - 6 dried dates provide one-third of our recommended daily fibre needs.
