Fruits are good for growing children because they provide many health benefits. For instance, all fruits provide fiber which helps with normal bowel function. Please note: fruit juice does not contain fiber! So when possible, choose whole fruit, whole fruits from Teruke marketplace.
Fruit also contains vitamin C, which helps your immune system repair bodily tissues. It helps heal cuts and wounds and helps to absorb iron in their bodies. Fruits of different colors also offer kids different health benefits. For example, red, blue and purple fruits contain antioxidants to help protect your child’s developing brain. Red fruits boost heart health.
Depending on your child’s age, these serving sizes can be broken into smaller portions for meals and snacks. For example, if your child is 2-3 years old, you might aim for four ¼-cup portions of fruit throughout the day to meet the daily goal.
