Is there anything better than biting into a freshly picked strawberry?  We could eat them like candy.

Strawberries are the MVP of the Vitamin C game. Eight strawberries have the same amount of Vitamin C as one whole orange!  In fact, 100 g of strawberries provides 98% of the daily recommended value of Vitamin C for most adults – and kids need even less than that! Vitamin C is important for kids as it assists their immune system in protecting their bodies from disease.

 A cup of naturally sweet strawberries (about 8 – 12 medium berries) has only 50 calories, making them the perfect treat to satisfy your sweet tooth.
