March is the American Dietetic Association’s National Nutrition Month.
This year, the theme is “Eat Right with Color.” That seems particularly fitting since seeing color is one of the things we value most about our eyes. The colors of the foods we eat – we are specifically talking about fruits and vegetables here – are often indicative of the nutrients they will deliver.
Check out the ADA’s guide for what colors indicate what great health benefits.
What’s an optometrist’s favorite color? Blue.
Bilberry (a cousin of the blueberry) is the ultimate eye food, mainly because it contains carotenoids, which are powerful antioxidants. Getting your does of blue foods will help anyone concerned about Poor Night Vision, Glaucoma, Myopia, Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy, Cataracts, or Computer Eye Syndrome.
