My daughter doesn’t need a single reason to eat cuties any time of year. She loves those little oranges, clementines or whatever you choose to call them. I know that some people though struggle to get something healthy onto the holiday table so I wanted to share some reasons to pop Cuties into your mouth and place them in the middle of your Holiday Table. See our table, they sure do add a pop of color to our holiday table. And if they are on the table your kids are more likely just going to eat them as they walk by. Remember if it’s out of site it’s out of mind so you might as well keep those healthy foods in site! It’s hard to find another perfectly sized snack that kids and adults love, are portable and can pack all that nutrition!
· Cuties are rich in antioxidants! Hesperidin and naringenin are antioxidant compounds found only in citrus fruit like Cuties. Studies at the University of Maryland Medical Center report that the flavonoids in citrus fruit may inhibit cancer growth, blood clots and inflammation.
· Cuties are a particularly good source of soluble fiber. Two little Cuties contain 4 grams of fiber. Diets high in fiber have been proven to help heart health.
· Cuties are packed with a number of vitamins including A, vitamin B-6, niacin, thiamine and pantothenic acid. And, they are especially high in folate and vitamin C. Two Cuties provides you with nearly 300% of the U.S.D.A’s recommended daily allowance of vitamin C (based upon 2,000 calorie diet).
· Cuties are also rich in minerals. Two Cuties contain 400 milligrams of potassium. According to Linus Pauling Institute, people who include plenty of high-potassium foods like Cuties in their diet may be less likely to suffer from kidney stones, osteoporosis and stroke.Cuties are also a great source of minerals like copper, iron, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. Together, these nutrients contribute to the synthesis of red blood cells and bone and support immune and nervous system health.
