Fun Eye Health Kids

Eye Health Kids

The American Macular Degeneration Society www.macular.org is celebrating “Healthy Vision Month” in May and as part of this have an eye health blog party on the 14th #EatRightForYourSight. I was delighted to be asked to be a part of this and promote awareness of how food can be a part of preventing loss of eyesight.

I have not prepared a traditional recipe (not my area of excellence!) but have done a food art plate using all those vibrant orange veg that are great for beta-carotene, Vit A and anti-oxidants and leafy greens great for providing lutein and Vit K (and loads more!).

This plate is aimed more at kids but as we know being chock-full of veggies right from the start is definitely the way to go!

  1. I’m also blogging for healthy vision, Judith! What a cute way you have incorporated healthy veggies in to a child’s menu. My five monsters would definitely gobble that up, in addition to enjoying the creation process. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks Holly. There have been some great blogs! I would need a bigger plate as I’d have to add a couple of extras for your family 🙂 Judith
