Fall for Apples

Red, green, and yellow apples are picked and ready for eating this fall.  Apples are fiber and nutrient rich.  Go to the grocery store and pick your favorite apple for eating today.  Carry an apple for lunch or a snack after school.  Here are some of the reasons to Fall for Apples now...


- Fiber:  An apple has two types of fiber.  One type of fiber helps digestion and the other type helps the heart stay healthy.

Antioxidants:  An apple contains antioxidants which protect the body from getting sick

- Lots of energy:  An apples is rich in carbohydrates.  Carbohydrates provide fuel for the muscles and the brain.

- Low in fat, cholesterol, and sodium:  An apple is naturally low in fat, cholesterol and sodium.  It is a healthy snack choice.

 

Remember to wash an apple before eating.  They spray apples with a wax to keep them crisp and moist.  It is the same type of wax that they use on chocolate candies to keep them fresh and edible.  It washes off easily.  Fall for Apples and enjoy every nutritious bite today!
