What are the benefits of chard?
Our nutritionist, Tracey Raye, says dark, leafy green vegetables like chard are some of the most nutrient dense foods. Just a single serving of chard (175g) provides your daily vitamin A and vitamin K requirements, while almost fulfilling your vitamin C requirements too! Chard is a good source of vitamin E, calcium, magnesium and zinc, as well as offering plenty of fibre which is a vital part of supporting your gut health and maintaining a healthy weight.
