A piece on peas

 

Peas are a good source of iron, fibre, are high in Vitamin A. Fibre helps to keep ‘bad’ cholesterol levels down while helping to boost the ‘good’ levels. Vitamin A can protect against defective eyesight and is also essential for the normal development of the foetus and young children. Canned, drained peas provide twice as much beta-carotene as boiled fresh peas, and a third more calcium.
