Kiwi

kiwi is a great snack on the go rich in vitamin c

Kiwi is a super fruit that is very rich in vitamin C making it a great antioxidant. I love eating it for breakfast, snack, and add it as a topping to many dishes. I do eat mine peeled, but my kids were taught at school to eat the entire kiwi fruit with the peel. I just don’t like the texture of the peel although it is also rich in nutrients and fiber. Since the body cannot store Vitamin C, we need to ensure we consume it every day to replenish our needs. Kiwi is my to go fruit almost every day.

Kiwi fruit is low calories and packed with many nutrients such as Vitamin K, copper, Vitamin E, fiber, potassium and folate. I like eating kiwi especially for breakfast as it is rich in fiber and starts my body going. Fiber rich breakfast also helps in weight loss because it promotes satiety and reduces hunger.

Kiwi is a great fruit to have during pregnancy as it is rich in fiber (pregnant women are more prone to constipation), rich in Vitamin C (strengthens your immune system), rich in folate (helps prevent occurrence of neural tube defects) and the presence of other rich minerals tat help with alkaline balance of the stomach (i.e. neutralize acidity in the stomach) reduces the nausea and heartburn.
