All about grapes

Why grapes are good for kids:

Grapes are an excellent source of energy for kids because they are rich in natural sugars (glucose and fructose). They are also full of water, carrying, vitamins C and B, as well as plenty of minerals. With their high water and potassium content, grapes help remove toxins from the body through better urine flow, which make them a great ally for our kids' kidneys. 

When and where to find grapes:

Grapes are synonymous with Fall with the prime season spanning from August to November. Different regions produce different varieties of grapes. No surprise, California is one of the main sources of grapes in the United States but other major grape-growing regions include  Washington, Oregon, New York, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.

How to choose the best grapes:

For the freshest and juiciest grapes, look for grapes that are firm and plump. The stem should be flexible (not brittle).

Grape ideas: 

- Frozen treat: Pop a few grapes in your freezer for a few hours for a nice frozen treat.

- Savory snack: Serve grapes for happy hours by rolling them into goat cheese and layering some nuts.
