10 Amazing Foods for Kids

Blueberries

These tiny nutritional powerhouses are bursting with vitamin C and folic acid, minerals (including potassium), fiber, and disease-fighting phytochemicals, shown to help prevent cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Wow! Plus, kids like to eat them -- sprinkled with a bit of sugar, topped with whipped cream, added to muffins and pancakes, or plopped into oatmeal, yogurt, or cottage cheese.

Next-best choice: Cantaloupe, which ranks nearly as high in phytochemicals and is just as nutritionally good for you as blueberries. Use a melon baller to scoop out a bowlful.

Picky-eater idea: Even kids who won't touch fresh berries think frozen ones are a treat.
