Why should you eat fruit?
We should eat a lot of fruits and vegetables in our diet, as they are the healthiest foods. Among other things, they support the body’s immunity, due to the fact that they have a lot of valuable ingredients. The most vitamins are usually found in the skins of fruits, for example, in apples. It is better not to peel apples from the skin, because then we deprive them of vitamins!
Fruits are recommended to be eaten especially by children, especially those who do not like vegetables. Fruits are usually more readily eaten by children because of their sweet taste. They also promote the proper development of the child, fruits are good for growth, strengthen bones. Besides, fruits also add a lot of energy and have a positive effect on brain function. We improve our ability to concentrate and remember thanks to them.
They can also promote the improvement of eyesight. You see, this is why it is worth eating fruits. Maybe our quiz will make you feel like eating some fruit, not necessarily exotic. Remember to get your children to eat fruit, and you too should try to eat fruit at least once a day.
Fresh or dried fruit?
Which is better, the fresh fruit or the dried ones? Perhaps the dried versions of the fruit taste better to you. Dried fruits are heat-treated, so they will be fit to eat for a longer time than the fresh ones. However, it is generally more recommended to eat fresh fruits.
Heat treatment strips fruit of vitamins and other important nutrients. Dried fruits are also more caloric and have more sugars. However, if you have a craving for sweet, dried fruits will also be a better choice than candy.
Dried fruits are still rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals that candy or chocolate do not have. How about chocolate-covered fruits? That’s just the combination! But if you plan to lose weight, it’s better to limit dried fruits and eat more vegetables.
