Pleasing Kids’ Palates with a Varied Palette
Many orange and yellow fruits and vegetables contain carotenoids, including carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, and squash. The carotenoids include alpha carotene, a substance that protects against cancer, and beta carotene, which the body converts to vitamin A. Vitamin A has health benefits both for your skin and your vision. Oranges and other citrus fruits, as most people know, are also high in vitamin C—a single orange contains 170 percent of a typical person’s daily needs for this important vitamin.
