Your guide to great produce for the season – and preparation tips to please kids

(page 9 of 9)

Swiss Chard

Good Body Benefits: Add some color to your meals with Swiss chard. The long, thick green leaves have stalks in colors like vibrant pinks and yellows. This is another food that's great for eye health. In just one cup of Swiss chard, you'll top 300 percent of your daily value of vitamin K (and that's not including the other vitamins and minerals you'll find in these surprisingly tasty veggies).

How to Prepare: "Kids love mac 'n' cheese," Loving says. So make that dish healthier by mixing in thinly-sliced pieces of Swiss chard. The chef notes that you can tuck pieces into pot pies and casseroles, too.
