(NAPSA) - If you've been tossing around ways to help your family eat better and provide good taste on their plates, consider a salad.
When making salads, select a variety of dark, leafy greens that are high in vitamins A and C. Experiment with different lettuce varieties such as arugula, butterhead, romaine, kale and leaf lettuce. Add a handful of baby spinach with dark green leaves which are rich in vitamin A.
