Vitamin C intake

I know we need Vitamin C to keep us healthy but I really don’t like citrus fruits as I find them too acidic. Can you tell me any other foods which I can eat to keep up my Vitamin C intake?

You could try the following:

  • Kiwi fruit

  • Red capsicums

  • Broccoli

  • Strawberries

  • Guava (available in cans)

  • Papaya

  • Rock melon

  • Potato, baked with skin

  • Cabbage

  • Spinach
