REASONS TO EAT MORE FRUIT

Posted: 11.1.2017

Fruit is a nutrient rich with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and is a good source of fiber. Fresh fruit is filling but not calorie dense. However, dried fruits such as raisins are high in calories. Research suggests that people who eat more fruit have a lower risk of heart attack and stroke. Berries in particular appear to be good for your brain as you age. Fruit helps keep your digestive system regular. Fruit is a convenient and very portable food item and usually doesn't require much prep. If purchased in season, fruit can be a very affordable part of a healthy diet. Experts say to shoot for 5-9 servings of fruit and vegetables a day.
