Let the Sun Shine With Sensational Summer Fruit

Produce for Better Health Foundation


What a better way to kick off the summer season than with the luscious flavor of summer fruit! And there are many ways to enjoy these summer treats – whether for breakfast, dessert or an afternoon snack. Fruit contains natural “phytochemicals” and antioxidants, which may help protect against some cancers, heart disease, cataracts, arthritis and other chronic diseases.

And, the more color the better – you’ll be getting a wide variety of nutrients and other healthful substances. Here is a brief list of the health benefits of some of your favorite summer fruit and how to incorporate them in your family’s diet.

Our friends at Produce for a Better Health Foundation gave us some great summer fruit inspiration . Check it out for some fun ideas for your Memorial Day picnic!
