If you are looking to find a food that tastes great and is healthy to include in festive meals for family and friends, look no further than the beautiful blueberry. Traditionally blueberries have been used to treat diarrhoea, gut problems, haemorrhoids, scurvy and urinary complaints.

Blueberries are widely recognised as one of the new superfoods, high in anthocyanins, which is the reason why this little fruit is proving to be such a success story in the treatment of vascular problems, wound healing and eyesight.

Some great ways you can include them in your Christmas fare is in salads and fruit salads, a topping for pavlova, or start your holiday season with a fabulous, tasty blueberry smoothie every morning.

Call into Blueberry Fields at Mullum and New Brighton farmers markets and talk to Lynette about their handpicked blueberries. Also, see our Facebook page for a fabulous blueberry and rocket salad recipe.
