Dr Oz Family Food: Orange Fiber Foods, Vitamin C & Vitamin A Carrots


Dr Oz: Family Food Quiz

According to Dr Oz, Orange is the New Green, and he shared some of the best healthy orange foods you should be eating. To help us all learn in a fun way, he presided over a game of Family Food, with the Tagios family playing against the Lane family. (Between this and the $500 Health Drop, I’m starting to think that Dr Oz wants to become a game show host.)

Dr Oz: Orange Fiber Foods

Dr Oz Family Food: Orange Fiber Foods, Vitamin C & Vitamin A Carrots

Dr Oz played a game of Family Food, pitting two families against one another in a healthy quiz challenge about fiber, Vitamin C, and Vitamin A sources.


Fiber has many health benefits, including weight loss and keeping you regular. But what are some of the orange foods with the highest fiber content?

In order of Fiber content, here are the top four orange foods Dr Oz and the contestants talked about.

  • Sweet Potato
  • Carrot
  • Orange
  • Winter Squash

Dr Oz: Orange Vitamin C Foods

Vitamin C is another important part of our diets, and to ask the next question, Dr Oz had a video message from The Chew co-host Carla Hall, who works with his daughter on the cooking show. Some orange foods are great sources of Vitamin C, which help boost our immune system. What do you think are the top Vitamin C-rich foods from the list Dr offered up?

  • Papaya
  • Orange
  • Cantaloupe
  • Mango

Dr Oz: Carrots Contain Vitamin A

Dr Oz said he is tired of contestants ending games in ties, so he had a bonus question. Carrots contain Vitamin A, which is good for eyes and skin. He also held up a bowl of cheese puffs, asking how many bowls of them you would have to eat to get the same amount of Vitamin A as a single serving of baby carrots.

The answer was 95 bowls, which would probably kill you if you tried to eat them. Maybe you should stick to orange fruits and veggies instead, which are delicious anyway.

Dr Oz: Best Letters from Kids

To wrap up the show, Dr Oz featured some of the bluntly honest and hilarious letters received by doctors and nurses from kids.

A nine-year-old thanked doctors and nurses for taking care of her. Another young man drew a picture of his healthy heart. Then there was 12-year-old Katie, who was in the audience to read her letter about a successful brain surgery.
