The holidays are known for treats and indulgence. It’s time to pull out the family recipes, fill the candy bowls, and share these great memories with the people you love.
But just because you are enjoying novelty foods with your loved ones doesn’t mean that you can’t also focus on good health habits during this time of year. As you plan your meals and snacks, consider ways to add healthy ingredients to your food. You might be surprised to learn that some of your classic holiday favorites include ingredients that support your eye health!
If you want to protect your eyes, choose foods with specific nutrients such as antioxidants, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, zinc, and beta-carotene. It’s possible that your food choices could reduce the risk of eye health complications by as much as 25%!
