Are Fruits Healthy?

Healthy Eating for Children - Fruits are healthy!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.

    I wash fruit but yeah not bananas. Maybe I sholud. I just picture all those grubby little snot-fingered kids in the market pawing over it. Or their mom. Or both. Or the dude with the hanta virus is in the store and groping all the apples. Whatever it is, I imagine it and wash things pretty well.
