All about strawberries

1. Why strawberries are great for kids:

Strawberries appeal to most children because of their sweetness but they are actually low in sugar and high in vitamin C. They will help boost your child’s immune system and, with their high content in antioxidants, can protect from the damages of the sun going into the Summer season.

 2. When and where to find strawberries:

Strawberries are in season late April through August and are cultivated throughout the United States. Find a strawberry farm near you to get the freshest pick.

 3. How to choose the best strawberries:

Look for plump, bright red strawberries with no white around the stems. Look for slightly shiny strawberries and avoid squishy overripe ones. Small strawberries tend to taste sweeter.

4. Serving tip:

Strawberries are wonderful dipped in chocolate or with drizzled honey. They also work great in a spinach salad with goat cheese and almonds.
