An apple a day keeps the doctor away! One medium apple delivers a powerful punch including 1/5 of your daily intake of dietary fiber and no fat, sodium or cholesterol.

Apples also contain a prebiotic called pectin, which provides food for the good bacteria found in your digestive system!

Apples are a big dessert fruit. And while we do love apple desserts, there are some many other yummy ways to eat apples every day.

Today, we’re teaming up with the New York Apple Association to bring your 7 delicious ways to include apples into your daily routine.
