Fruits are essential for good health, include them in your diet to meet nutritional requirements due to their high content of:

• Fiber
• Vitamins
• Minerals

• Water
• and antioxidants
and they also do not contain cholesterol and provide few calories.

These foods are essential in the prevention of many and widespread chronic diseases such as obesity, especially among children. In addition to helping to maintain the ideal weight, consuming 5 servings of fruits and vegetables is a boost to prevent diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease.

They should be consumed preferably in all main meals or in the absence of any of these during the mid-morning or snack.

It is advisable to always consume them whole, since when consuming them in the form of juice we lose a good amount of fiber on the one hand, and on the other, the feeling of satiety that we perceive through chewing. Whole fruits, with skin whenever possible (after having washed them properly) or in the form of a smoothie (where we only discard the pit if they have any) should be part of our healthy menus on a daily basis.

What does fruit contribute to health:

Fruits provide vitamins, minerals and fiber. It is important to know why these nutrients are so important:

Vitamins: The fruit stands out for its content of vitamins A and C. The first is used to develop vision and bones. Vitamin C also helps to strengthen the bones and gums, in addition to repairing tissues. Keep in mind that the main source of vitamin C, if not the only one, is fruit.

Minerals: In fruits there are mainly potassium and magnesium. Potassium helps nerves and muscles communicate and nutrients flow through cells. Magnesium is essential in human nutrition, serving for the body’s biochemical reactions.

Iron is another mineral that is found in practically all fruits, although in small amounts. In this case, it must be taken into account that vitamin C is essential for iron to be absorbed correctly, that is why it is important to take these two nutrients.

Fiber: Helps digestion and fights constipation. It also satiates, something very important considering the data on childhood obesity.
