Today’s health tip is all about fruit! Any fruit, or juice that is 100% juice, is apart of the fruit group. If you are even moderately active during the day, you need to consume fruit daily! Not a lot, but just enough for your body. Children ages 4-8 need to consume 1 cup to 1.5 cups daily. A cup is mostly one piece of any fruit. Here are some examples of how much and what you could eat daily.
An apple! One apple is a good source of fruit for the day.
An orange! This whole orange would be one cup of fruit.
A plum! To consume a full cup of this fruit you would have to eat two of these. (Don’t worry – they’re pretty small….and delicious!)
Strawberries! (These are my favorite) You would have to eat 8 of these for one whole cup.
Don’t forget! 1 cup of fruit a day! Enjoy your fruit!
