Day 6 Keep away colds with a boost of Vitamin C

On the 6th day of Christmas my Registered Dietitian 
Recommended to me...
A boost of Vitamin C! 

The holidays can take its toll on our bodies and a little boost of Vitamin C will help to fight off some of the uninvited holiday rundown sicknesses. 

Here are a few quick tips to squeeze in some Vitamin C during the day: 
1. Start your day with a Smoothie packed with apples, oranges and pomegranate juice. Blend it with a cup of plain low-fat yogurt or milk to give it an extra protein punch. 

2. Place a bowl of easily peel-able small oranges and washed apples on the table for everyone to grab for a quick snack. To "dress up" the whole fruits, print out the holiday fruit mask by clicking here. 

3. Provide apple slices with nut butter as a snack, breakfast idea or classroom snack idea. 

4. Throw some pomegranate seeds into a salad at dinner and toss with a citrus vinaigrette. 

Get a quick boost of Vitamin C and the recommended 80-100 Milligrams per day and keep your body healthy and happy throughout the holidays.
