Berry Good for You!
Berries fit the bill with their lively colors and unique shapes! Berries include the
ever-popular strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries, but some others you may
know are blackberries, cranberries, and boysenberries. These bright and colorful
fruits are perfect for someone who wants to eat a healthy snack but has a craving
Berries are packed with important vitamins and nutrients, such as vitamin C,
antioxidants, and fiber. These are all helpful in keeping your body healthy. Some of
those nutrients have been shown to help build your immune system so you can
fight off illnesses, control blood sugar for people with diabetes, and protect against
many forms of cancer.
You should try to eat at least a 1⁄2 cup of berries each day whether in fresh, frozen,
dried, or 100% juice forms. Fresh fruit is delicious by itself or in yogurt parfaits but
be sure to wash it first to make sure it’s safe to eat. Dried fruit is a sweet addition
to a salty trail mix or savory salad, and frozen fruit is great for making smoothies or
is a cheaper option when berries aren’t in season. Make a rainbow of choices when
eating berries to keep your taste buds guessing and to reap the health benefits
from the different varieties.
