What we love about Strawberries:
Besides being sweet, juicy, and a family favorite, Strawberries are actually loaded in Vitamin C. These berries pack a punch in potassium, fiber, and folate! Strawberries are a low calorie fruit, too. Just one serving of these berries can even help improve heart health, lower the risk of developing certain cancers, and have been known to lower blood pressure. So when you are looking for a healthier snacking option for your family, pick up some fresh strawberries!
