Spinach truly is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. Though low in calories, spinach contains high concentration of iron and calcium. It is extremely high in antioxidants, especially when fresh, steamed, or quickly boiled (see Get children eat vegetables: Spinach casserole with bacon and fresh shiitake mushrooms).
It is a rich source of vitamin A (and lutein), vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, magnesium, manganese, folate, vitamin B2, potassium, vitamin B6, folic acid, copper, protein, phosphorus, zinc, niacin, selenium and omega-3 fatty acids. Recently, opioid peptides called rubiscolins have also been found in spinach. It is a source of folic acid (Vitamin B9), and this vitamin was first purified from spinach (see Get children eat vegetables: Spinach casserole with bacon and fresh shiitake mushrooms).
Besides simple starches, sweet potatoes are rich in complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber, beta carotene (a vitamin A equivalent nutrient), vitamin C, and vitamin B6, manganese, copper, potassium and iron. The same as carrots, sweet potato is also an excellent cure for constipation (see Get children eat vegetables: Carrot & sweet potato mix).
