My kids love junk food and candies. To encourage them eat more fruits, I get them
involved in food preparation to teach the goodness of natural foods. Kids can also
make this quick and easy healthy snack without much help from adults.
Apples are good for the whole family; it is a delicious way to introduce fiber into
your kid's diet. A medium size apple has about 5 grams of fiber and this is more
than most breakfast cereals.
Besides, apples are rich in Vitamin C, an antioxidant that protect the body's cells
and keep young bodies healthy.
