What is meaning of term ‘Superfoods’?

Superfoods refer to a variety of foods many of them plant-based -said to be packed with nutrition The likes of blueberries, salmon, and kale are often part of what are called superfoods While discussing superfoods it is good to remember that the word is neither an official attestation by any government nor a medically proven label for the types of foods labelled so. In fact many consider the word a marketing ploy to sell specific kinds of food. Rather than try to stick to foods falling under the superfoods category, nutritionists urge us to consume a variety of foods that cover reasonable amounts of fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, fish, meat, dairy, etc. since all these together provide us with a range of nutrients. While choosing what we eat, it is always wise to go in for natural and organic foods and those free of chemicals and carcinogens (cancer-causing agents). Such foods are far kinder to both humans and our planet than their processed counterparts.
