The top ten highlights a range of seasonal, nutrient-rich foods that are synonymous with Christmas time (in the UK at least) and the British Nutrition Foundation (BNF) has also provided suggestions for new ways to prepare some old favourites.
Sara Stanner, Science Director, British Nutrition Foundation, said: “The festive season is filled with a whole range of delicious foods, many of which are also nutrient rich and can make a great contribution to the diet. From vitamin C in clementines and fibre in nuts and dried fruit, to omega 3 fats in salmon and B vitamins in turkey. Many of these nutritious, festive foods are also very versatile.”
