Soloberry: promoting the benefits of blueberries for National Eye Health Week

Today is the beginning of National Eye Health Week and here at Soloberry we are all about eating as many blueberries as possible to boost your eye health!

Last year, we collaborated with local charity, Kent Association for the Blind to share the benefits of blueberries with the public across events in the county where we are based.  This year National Eye Health Week runs from Monday 23rd to Sunday 29th September with events across the country promoting the need to have regular eye tests to look after you eye health – did you know you should have your eyes tested at least every two years?

Vision really matters. Sight is the sense people fear losing the most, yet many of us don’t know how to look after our eyes – National Eye Health Week aims to change all that!  Here at Soloberry we are all about “berries for health” it’s a motto that runs through everything that we do. 

Earlier in the year we presented this blueberry infographic at the showjumping event, Jumping Hulsterlo in Kieldrecht on the Belgian/Netherlands border, where we presented winners of the event with our branded blueberries.  Blueberries are a low fat, snackable product that’s great for you thanks to its anthocyanins, flavonoids and multiple health boosts over other foods. The perfect post event snack to boost energy levels and blueberries are great for the brain and eyes to help keep focused in such a competitive event.

View our infographic below to get great blueberry facts and later in the week we will be sharing our favourite recipes on how to enjoy blueberries.

Rachel Montague-Ebbs, Group Head of Brand and Communications explains, “At Soloberry we are committed to making the world a healthier place, one berry at a time. Blueberries are one of our favourites because they are so nutrient rich, the super healthiest of snacks! These incredibly tasty berries pack a vitamin punch!”

It's no secret that blueberries are packed with antioxidants but did you know they pack a punch for overall eye health and wellness, too? Many studies have shown that blueberries may help to reduce your risk of cataracts, glaucoma, heart disease, cancer, and other conditions.

Are you a blueberry lover?
