Green Vegetables

Today we’ll focus on green fruits and vegetables! Greens have lots of Vitamin C! Do you remember what Vitamin C helps with? It helps you heal faster from cuts and scrapes. It may even help prevent some illnesses.

Dark green veggies have Vitamin K. Vitamin K is important for your blood to stay thick and turn into scabs when you get cut. It’s important for strong bones too!
