Dietician’s Note

Carrots are an excellent source of minerals and vitamins, especially Vitamin A.

Pineapple is an excellent source of vitamin especially Vitamin C, minerals like potassium which is beneficial to people suffering from hypertension.

Both carrot and pineapple are good sources of fibre, which help in relieving constipation.
