Yes, fruits are an excellent part of a healthy diet. But the question really should be how many carbohydrates are in the fruit you would like to eat. A common guideline is to limit your serving of fruit to 15 grams of carbohydrates. If the fruit has a low amount of carbohydrates, you can eat more of it.
How much fruit contains 15 grams of carbs? Usually a small piece of whole fruit or a 1/2 cup of canned or frozen fruit. 1/3 to 1/2 cup of fresh melons or berries or fruit juice. Remember that dried fruit has been condensed so there are more carbs per ounce. Only 2 tablespoons will give you 15 grams of carbohydrates!
As part of healthy eating for children, buy some of these common fruits:
Apples, apricots, bananas, berries, fruit cocktail, grapefruit, oranges, pears, strawberries.
