Eating for eye health: Are you eating the right food to boost your peepers?

Healthy eyes can start right in your kitchen. That’s why we’ve collected lots of great tips to make eye health as easy as 1-2-3 to start off the school year. These healthy for your eyes recipes are rich in green leafy greens, antioxidants, and beta-carotene!

 

Good eye health starts with the food on your plate.

Nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, lutein, zinc, and vitamins C and E might help ward off age-related vision problems like macular degeneration and cataracts. To get them, fill your plate with:

  • Green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale, and collards
  • Salmon, tuna, and other oily fish
  • Eggs, nuts, beans, and other nonmeat protein sources
  • Oranges and other citrus fruits or juices
  • Oysters and pork

A well-balanced diet also helps you stay at a healthy weight. That lowers your odds of obesity and related diseases like type 2 diabetes, which is the leading cause of blindness in adults.
