Vitamin A-Rich Foods to Add to Your Diet


Vitamin A content in one big carrot is 12,028 IU, more than double the daily recommended value of 5,000 IU. We obtain vitamin A from fruits and vegetables in the form of beta carotene, which the body converts to vitamin A.


Love salads with spinach? You're in luck then. The green vegetable has a huge 2,813 IU per cup, so eating a few hearty handfuls for lunch can significantly benefit your health.

Dried Apricots

Dried apricots are a wonderful option if you need a snack on the go: 4,685 IU of vitamin A, as well as iron, vitamin B6, and magnesium, are all present in one cup.


Do you need one more excuse to eat cantaloupe frequently? One big slice provides 3,450 IU of vitamin A, while a small melon's complete serving (which is only 149 calories!) provides 15,000 IU.

Sweet Potato

Consider taking a seat for this. One 5" entire sweet potato or one cup of diced sweet potatoes can give you a ridiculously high 18,869 IU. Eat up!


Want something energizing? Grab yourself a grapefruit. Each fruit in the pink or red type has 2,830 IU of vitamin A.


Know what is crazy? You can get 510 IU of vitamin A from a cup of pistachios. What do almonds and cashews provide you in the interim? Nada!


When it comes to vitamin A, broccoli comes out on top. The fibrous vegetable has 3,788 IU per bunch in addition to having very high levels of calcium, protein, and vitamin C.
