Eating vegetables help to provide a source of many nutrients, to include potassium, dietary fiber, folate (folic acid) and vitamins to include A, E and C.. Vegetable options such as broccoli, spinach, tomatoes and garlic help to provide additional benefits, which make them a superfood. Potassium may also help to maintain healthy blood pressure.

Women who are of childbearing age who may become pregnant and those who are in the first trimester of pregnancy need adequate folate to help reduce the risk of neural tube defects and spina bifida during fetal development.
