karsonheadshot WIC Nutrition Buzz: Benefits of Blueberries

Here’s Karson from Karson & Kennedy In the Morning to share his story about the WIC Nutrition Program:

Blueberries are our sons favorite fruit and it’s good because they offer many noteworthy nutritional benefits, including a low-cal treat of 80 calories per cup.

Also, you can pack 25% of your daily requirement of vitamin C. This vitamin helps in the formation of collagen, maintain healthy gums and promote iron absorption and a healthy immune system.

Snag a handful of blueberries which will cover your daily fiber requirement. Blueberries are at the top of the list of antioxidant foods, so eat up!

And, if you need another reason to pop in a few blueberries, research shows that blueberries may have a positive effect on improving night vision, reduces blood glucose levels & stops Barrett when he’s fussy. Well, I guess that’s just a benefit for me.
