Fruit Salad

Most fruits are naturally low in fat, sodium and calories. Fruits are full of many nutrients, such as potassium, fiber, vitamin C and folate, that most people do not get enough of in their diets. A healthy diet rich in fruit can help prevent heart disease and some types of cancer.

What can these fruits do for you?

Pineapple

Has more than 100% of the daily value of vitamin C, which helps the body grow and heal cuts and wounds.

Watermelon

Made up of 92% water and a tasty way to stay hydrated. A good source of vitamins C, B6 and thiamin, all important for metabolism and energy.

Orange

Known for vitamin C, but also a good source of fiber, which lowers blood cholesterol.

Lemon

A big squeeze can add flavor and vitamins to your water without all the sugar and calories of other drinks.

Apple

A good source of fiber—and not just in the skin! Apple skin and flesh contain fiber that can help lower blood cholesterol and support a healthy gut.

Kiwi

High in vitamin K, which is important for blood clotting and building strong bones.
