An explosion of food-related research shows a strong connection between food and health. Harvard Medical School’s article for Staying Healthy indicates vitamins and minerals such as Vitamins C and E, lutein, zeaxanthin, copper and zinc in various foods fuel your body and can help protect vision for the long haul. Just another reason to develop good eating habits and take in the right nutrients for healthy vision. Below are some simple ways to eat healthy and care for your vision. 

Foods to Keep Your Eyes and Body Healthy 

Nature has just what you need for energy boosts and vision protection. Get the most from what you eat by choosing a variety of colorful produce that's rich in antioxidants. Bump up your nutritional intake by selecting foods with selenium, vitamin E, vitamin C, alpha lipoic acid, zinc, and omega-3 fats. Throw together a colorful salad or steam some vegetables for a terrific side dish or grab some fresh fruit or vegetables for a wholesome snack.
