7. Eggs

Real Eggs

Eggs are a versatile food packed with protein, vitamin D, choline, and, you guessed it, vitamin A. Two hard-boiled eggs contain about 520 IU of vitamin A. Eggs can be enjoyed boiled, scrambled, poached, fried, or cooked into an omelet. To receive the benefit of vitamin A from both eggs and cheese, you may want to whip up a quiche or egg bake. Allrecipes offers an Egg Casserole recipe that contains eggs, sausage, cheddar cheese, and torn bread.

6. Fortified Cereals

Cereal Fiber

While cereals are not naturally high in vitamin A, you can find cereals that have been fortified with this vitamin. Check the labels on whole grain, bran, granola, and other types of cereal to find those that are low in sugar, high in fiber, and fortified with essential vitamins and minerals. Avoid choosing products that contain ingredients that are difficult to pronounce as well as high fructose corn syrup.

5. Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Pie

Another sweet treat that is rich in vitamin A is that old Thanksgiving standby, pumpkin pie. Pie made from nutrient-packed pumpkin contains many essential vitamins. Plus, the vibrant, orange hue signals that this gourd contains the beta-carotene your body converts into vitamin A. One cup of canned pumpkin contains a whopping 763% of the recommended daily value of vitamin A. Pie isn’t the only goodie you can make using canned pumpkin. Whip up a pumpkin latte, pumpkin soup, a pumpkin smoothie, or a batch of pumpkin bread using this versatile ingredient.
