Superfoods are foods that are thought to have some kind of special benefit above and beyond normal foods. They are often fruits, vegetables, grains or seeds from exotic locations that have high amounts of vitamins or minerals. In reality however, all fruits, vegetables, grains and seeds are great for us and contain vitamins and minerals that keep us healthy.

It is also important to include a variety of foods in our diets rather than stay fixated on one or two in particular. Variety ensures our bodies receive the full array of nutrients, vitamins and minerals we need, and it keeps us from getting bored!
