NUTRITION CHALLENGE

Lots of people celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by wearing green clothes. But eating green veggies is another fun—and healthy—way to celebrate. Dark, leafy green veggies are packed with all kinds of vitamins. They contain high amounts of folate, iron, and fiber. And they are loaded with antioxidants. Popular leafy greens include spinach, kale, chard, broccoli and bok choy. Don’t forget about mustard and collard greens. And, of course, there’s always cabbage! It’s not as dark as some of the other greens, but you can still make it a part of a nutritious Saint Patrick’s Day meal.
