Strawberries, Yum!
Isn't it nice when something so tasty is good for you too? Strawberries are among the most popular fruits in the world, with over fifty percent of kids ages seven to nine claiming them as their favorite. A nutritional "superfood," strawberries are rich in nitrates and a great source of vitamin C, antioxidants, potassium, folate, and fiber. In addition to being yummy and healthy to eat, strawberries, a member of the rose family, are a popular addition to gardens because of their beauty and sweet scent. Strawberries are unique in that they are the only fruit that wears its seeds on the outside - one berry can have as many as 200 seeds! The berries are ripening as you read this - and it's true they are sweeter right off the vine, so you might want to head out to a local pick-your-own farm.
