Eat the Rainbow for Your Eyes

Green: Spinach, Kale, Leafy Greens


Leafy green vegetables are some of the best sources of lutein. Cooking vegetables, like sauteed spinach or baked kale, dramatically increases lutein absorption in the body. Peas, broccoli, green beans, pistachios and kiwi are also great sources of lutein, as well as herbs like parsley and cilantro. For kids who won't eat spinach, try spinach noodles or kale chips.
