Porridge is a great way to start the day
especially with a healthy topper.
Today I added a few blueberries to my porridge and they were delicious.
I know that a handful of blueberries make a great contribution to your 5-a-day. The NHS website spells out the benefits by asking are blueberries a superfood?
According to the NHS, some nutritionists believe that if you make only one change to your diet it should be to add blueberries.
Blueberries are valued for their high levels of antioxidants.
Antioxidants are a type of molecule that can neutralise free radicals, which are a type of unstable and highly reactive species of molecule. I’m no scientist so if you want to understand more you’ll have to read this NHS page.
Alison Hornby is a dietitian and spokesperson for the British Diabetic Association. She told the NHS researcher that the health claims for blueberries were inconclusive but that blueberries make a fantastic choice as one of your five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.
And I agree with that!
