‘Tis the season for colds. Or at least it has been in our family on and off this whole winter. As I battle to keep my kids healthy, running to Kate’s every time I run out of children’s vitamins can just get too expensive. The answer? Kiwis! Just one kiwi contains 50% of one’s vitamin C intake for the day (for such a small fruit that’s a BIG punch!). My kids LOVE them. I’ll scoop out the beautiful green flesh with a spoon and cut them in small pieces for Leo and I do the same for the girls. Just not as small. This morning Grace had 5! That’s a huge shot of vitamin C and directly from a whole food which I believe is so much better than a supplement. Granted, I use the supplements too when needed, but if at all costs I can get my hands on whole foods…that’s what I opt for. So there ya go! A little bit of useful info to help ward off those colds for you little ones. And for you too! Not to mention kiwis are just so beautiful.
