These iron-rich greens help build bones and red blood cells.

Brimming with vitamin C, which gives us luscious locks and radiant skin.

Top sources of disease-fighting antioxidants.

6. ‘Oily’ fish
A dose of omega-3 fatty acids (read: good fats do exist!) for good heart health.

7. Dark chocolate (more than 70 per cent cocoa)
Yes, it’s true – chocolate is good for our hearts, fights ageing and satisfies occasional sugar cravings.

8. Low-fat diary products
Good sources of protein and calcium that keep our bones strong.

9. Tofu, soya milk and other soya bean products
Good sources of protein and phytoestrogens that ward against breast cancer.
