Strawberries

Nobody knows how much great nutrition is packed into each and every strawberry. Did you know, for instance, that 8 strawberries have more vitamin C than an orange?

Folate is one of the B vitamins found in various foods such as strawberries. Eight strawberries have 20% of the folic acid you need every day. As part of the 5-a-day program suggested by the American Cancer Institute, strawberries can also play a part in helping you reduce your risk of cancer or heart disease. Hard to believe? Tasting is believing.
