Immune System Heroes

Eating well

Eating in full colour is an easy thing to do, especially when you’ve got Birds Eye Frozen Vegetables in your freezer.

But there’s more to our colourful vegetables than meets the eye. They’re not just tasty, great-looking, and easy-to-prepare. They also have a whole host of health benefits, which can help keep your body ticking! From vitamins to minerals to other essential nutrients, our range of vegetables, as well as our other products, are packed with goodness. And when you eat well, you help yourself stay well.

Healthy and happy

Having a varied and balanced diet is important for overall health and wellness. That’s because the body needs a range of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to maintain its normal function.

One of those important functions is the immune system – the body’s protection from illness and infection. During winter months, times of stress, or when you’re not getting enough sleep, your body needs all the help it can get to maintain the immune system’s normal function. So it’s more important than ever that you eat in full colour, and give your body the nutrients it needs.

Foods like spinach contain vitamin A,  while other green foods like peas and broccoli have vitamin C . Both contribute to the immune system, meaning even one meal can give your body a little boost! Peas and spinach are also sources of folate –, which is essential for the body’s maintenance.

But it’s not just our vegetables which help to keep the immune system going. Our chicken range contains vitamin B6 , while our fish products contain selenium and B12 – all three of which are essential nutrients which can only be acquired through your diet.

All these vitamins and minerals are essential for keeping the immune system in balance. Thankfully, we’ve got a whole load of ways to get them into your diet! 

Get a boost of nutrients

Vitamins C, D, B6, B12, as well as selenium and iron, are all essential elements of keeping your body’s immune system going. And with the Birds Eye range, it couldn’t be easier to make sure you maintain a balanced diet.

Try some Sweet and Sour Crispy Chicken with Noodles to get some vital vitamin B6, or why not whip up some Grilled Halloumi with Peas, Pine Nuts, Broad Beans, and Rocket to get a boost of folate, vitamin A and vitamin C!

But if neither of those tickle your taste buds, we’ve got loads of delicious and healthy recipes on our website. Have a browse and see how you can give your immune system a helping hand by eating in full colour.
