Packed with Goodness
Eating in full colour with Birds Eye frozen vegetables has all sorts of benefits! Not only does it make every meal tasty and easy, it also makes them healthier. That’s because the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in vegetables are locked in when we freeze them, meaning that every meal you prepare is packed with goodness.
So, what exactly do all these vitamins and other nutrients do?
Good skin wins
We all know that vegetables are good for us, but what a lot of people don’t realise is that they can also contribute towards maintaining your skin! Two of the vitamins found in green vegetables – vitamin A, and vitamin C – can help you keep your skin healthy.
That’s because vitamin A and vitamin C are both part of what is sometimes called the ‘antioxidant vitamin’ group’ – a group of vitamins associated with certain health benefits.Vitamin A, found in green vegetables like spinach, kale, asparagus, and leek, has been shown to contribute to the maintenance of normal skin. And Vitamin C, which can be found in other green vegetables such as peas, broccoli, mangetout, and sugar snaps, does the same. Our Steamfresh mixes such as Romanesco Broccoli, Garden Peas & Spinach are the perfect blend of skin-friendly sources.

Of course, both vitamins can be found in other foods too! Cheese, eggs, and oily fish are great sources of vitamin A (which has also been shown to help with keeping your immune system healthy). Vitamin C, on the other hand, can be found in fruit as well as vegetables: oranges, strawberries, and blackcurrants, along with potatoes, green and red peppers, and Brussels sprouts.
