Kiwi A Go-Go…
What’s in a Kiwi?
Kiwi’s are soaring with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They’re a rich source of Vitamins A, C and E…so set aside that orange and reach for a kiwi…
Need another reason to get kiwi a go-go?
These beautiful fuzzy babies are soaring with potassium, so go ahead and set aside that banana and reach for a kiwi…
Calcium in a kiwi? You bet. Milk may do a body good, but kiwi’s have calcium, too!
Like all fruits n’ veggies, kiwi’s are full of fiber and taste delicious when added to breakfast, lunch, dinner or even dessert!
Yearning for a lil’ Omega-3 Fatty Acid? Well, look no further than kiwi’s because when their seeds are crushed, they yield an oil rich in Omega 3’s…
And if that isn’t enough for you…these fuzzy lil’ friends are hard at work from the minute you bite into them..attacking free radicals to protect your body, keep you healthy and happy!
So, just because I’m the Healthy Apple, doesn’t mean I’m not a Healthy Kiwi, too…hehe…
Because I sure am…
