Adding a one-cup serving of blueberries a day is an easy way to boost your daily nutrition. In just 80 calories, a one-cup serving delivers crave-worthy flavor and beneficial vitamins and minerals, including four essential nutrients and phytonutrients. For example, blueberries are a good source of fiber (4 grams per serving), which helps support heart health and digestive health, helping you feel full and stay “regular.” Blueberries are also a good source of vitamin C (15% DV per serving), an antioxidant that helps support a healthy immune system. If you haven’t already been inspired to grab a boost of blue, here’s another fun fact. Blueberries contribute essential nutrients like vitamin K to support bone metabolism and regulate blood clotting and manganese to help convert protein, carbohydrates and fat into energy. Blueberries are deliciously simple, snackable and healthful – a quick win every day for any meal or snack.
