3 Reasons to Eat Kiwis
Published: 03/18/2013

Furry on the outside and emerald green on the inside, the kiwi is an odd-looking fruit that packs a healthy punch. It offers not only a generous amount of vitamin C – approximately 95% of the recommended daily value in one fruit – but is also: 

  • High in other antioxidants
  • A good source of fiber
  • A source of a complex of nutrients that appear to support immune system, vision and cardiovascular health

Consider adding kiwi to your cereal, fruit salads, garnishes and smoothies for a healthy, sweet, tangy treat. Or, eat on its own by scooping the flesh right out of the skin. To find a ripe kiwi, look for one that appears plump and yields to gentle pressure when squeezed lightly. Avoid mushy kiwis or ones with shriveled skin.
