Best fruits to eat throughout the year
Do you know what's in season?
Eating a healthy and balanced diet throughout the year not only is delicious, it improves your mood and wellbeing. Ensuring you’re getting your 5-a-day means incorporating different varieties of fruits into your meals and snacks, but do you know which fruits are currently in season and which taste the best?
Apricots, flat peaches, cherries, melons and nectarines thrive during summertime. Summer fruits taste sweeter and juicier from the months of May until September. Apricots are a great source of Vitamin A, C, fibre and potassium. The apricot fruit keeps your immune system working at its best, and its source of fibre helps reduce bad cholesterol. Regarded as one of the healthiest fruits, apricots contain non-heme iron, which is the best type of iron if you’re iron deficient or anaemic as the mineral stays longer in the system.
During the spring season satsumas, passion fruits, blueberries are all in their prime. Satsumas are known for their high amounts of Vitamin C, which strengthens immune systems and improves skin and joint health. The fruit can also turn sugars into fats when digested into the body, so this means eating satsumas on a regular basis can help preserve low and controlled sugar levels.
Our fruit of the month, clementines and blackberries are the fruits in season during autumn. Clementines are a cross between an orange and a mandarin, which makes them deliciously sweet and a perfect boost for your immune system as they include minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium. Blackberries are the symbol of autumn seasons, they are more than 85% water so they are hydrating, as well as keeping your skin rejuvenated due to their omega-3 and 6 fatty acid benefits.
