10 foods to boost your kids’ eyesight
Turns out, there is some truth to my parents’ wise words after all. According to Shania Khialani, Dietician/Nutritionist with the Marie-Claire O Shea Dietitians in Australia, studies have proven that eating certain foods can indeed improve your eyesight, thanks to the high content of vitamin A. Khialani shares that a 2011 study carried out by Mayo-Wilson et. al. of the University of Oxford revealed that vitamin A was also associated with a reduced prevalence of vision problems including night blindness and xerophthalmia, a condition in which the eye fails to produce tears.
It makes sense then that parents should give their kids foods to boost their eyesight (see, my parents were right after all!).
