Nothing says spring like a punnet of juicy blueberries. Delectable on their own (by the handful!), or with yoghurt, in smoothies or atop pancakes, they are rich in vitamin C, as well as minerals for healthy bones and skin. Some research has even shown they can improve short-term memory – so if you needed an excuse, you’re welcome.
And blueberries are not only good for you – they’re good for the Foundation. From 8 September until 5 October, 10 cents from every punnet of 200g Eureka blueberries sold at Coles will be donated to the Foundation (up to the value of $75,000).
“We have strict guidelines for Eureka blueberries – they must be a certain size, as well as crunchy, sweet and full of flavour.” –Natalie Bell
If you’re wondering about how blueberries are grown and the production of getting them from the farm to you, find out more from Eureka blueberry grower, Natalie Bell from Mountain Blue Farms, who was quizzed by students from Camberwell South Primary School.
For a mindful activity, try your hand at our colouring competition to go into the running for a $500 Bunnings voucher – perhaps to start your very own blueberry garden or one of three kitchen garden prize packs! Competition closes 5 October. See the T&Cs here.
