What are some benefits to eating strawberries?
Studies consistently show that kids are not getting the recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables. But, red, sweet, juicy strawberries are one healthy fruit that you won’t have any trouble getting your child to eat.
Strawberries are one of America’s most loved fruits, with the average American consuming 8 pounds per year.
A cup of naturally sweet strawberries (about 8 medium) has only 50 calories, making them the perfect treat to satisfy your child’s sweet tooth. Strawberries for dessert pack a powerful nutrient punch that many traditional desserts lack.
Strawberries are rich in vitamin C, folate, fiber and potassium. Just 1 cup contains 160 percent of the recommended Daily Value of vitamin C, which is necessary for growth and body tissue repair, and for maintaining a healthy immune system. Fiber aids in digestive health and 1 cup of sliced strawberries provides 3.3 grams of fiber. Strawberries are rich in antioxidants including anthocyanins, which give them their bright red color. These compounds may help prevent some chronic diseases, including cancer, heart disease and diabetes. (read more here)
