Dietitians Health Pick of the Month - Blueberries!
As part of our Enhanced Dining Services, our dietitian picks a different food each month to be incorporated into resident meals, and each facility provides a display to educate residents, family and staff.
This month is Blueberries - Blueberries can be added to many different recipes to give an additional nutritional boost - from muffins to salads. Some of the great nutritional value of blueberries include dietary fiber and vitamin C, antioxidants to help protect agains cancer, heart disease and other age-related diseases, and compounds that help prevent urinary tract infection.
In addition to their sweet, delectiable flavor and visual appeal, blueberries are jam-packed with good nutrition. They're a convenient little berry - at home in pies and pancakes, salads, smoothies, and sauces. Or, simply wash and eat - no peeling, pitting or slicing needed!
Eat blueberries this month!!
