Give Thanks for Vegetable of the Month: Broccoli

Posted by Kevin Silvia @

Broccoli is one of the most popular vegetables consumed in the world. Here at Whitsons, we want to make sure that you get the most out of this nutrient packed vegetable!

This vegetable is part of the cruciferous family, related to cabbage, kale, cauliflower, and Brussel sprouts. Broccoli is known for its multiple health benefits and is often referred to as a “super veggie.” It is high in a variety of nutrients including: fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, iron, and potassium. Broccoli can be enjoyed raw as well as cooked, which is useful when it comes to choosing it for a recipe! Whitsons knows the benefits of broccoli, so we love to incorporate this vegetable into your child’s lunch as either a side dish or part of the main course. 

A part from its great taste, broccoli is full of many nutritional benefits! First, it contains iron which is important for healthy blood flow and the normal functioning of cells; it is essential in helping your child stay focused and learn as much as possible during the school day. This mineral is also important because without it, children can become easily fatigued and tired. Iron is also important in the maintenance of healthy cells, skin, hair, and nails.  Another beneficial nutrient found in this vegetable is folate; this vitamin is important because it not only gives your child energy, but also a healthy heart and decreases their risk of cancer in the future. The Vitamin C present in broccoli, is essential when it comes to helping your child heal their cuts and scrapes, as well as keep their teeth and gums healthy. It is also considered to be low fat, low sodium, and cholesterol free, which helps your child be their overall best self!

Like other cruciferous vegetables, broccoli contains bioactive compounds that have been shown to have many positive health effects. There have been many studies that have found these vegetables to aid in the reduction of many cancers. Also, specific components in the broccoli have been shown to lower overall cholesterol levels. The reduction of cholesterol can decrease the risk of both heart disease and cancer in the future.

Lastly, broccoli contains Vitamin A, which is important when it comes to eye health, bone growth, and boosting a kid’s immune system. This is all important in increasing your child’s ability to learn and be able to better their attendance during the school year. Your child can learn more about the benefits of broccoli through Whitsons Nutrition Safari Program! 

Green vegetables are a weekly requirement of Whitsons school meals, so your child is sure to see and enjoy this vegetable in a variety of different ways!
