Students may take two fruit servings with each meal. They must take at least one.
Grapefruit and Kiwis are the snack possibilities for Monday and Tuesday
Grapefruit is a hybrid originating in Barbados as an accidental cross between two introduced species, sweet orange (C. sinesis) and pomelo or shaddock (C. maxima), both of which were introduced from Asia in the seventeenth century.
Kiwifruit is considered a “nutritional all-star”. A Rutgers University researchers found that kiwifruit has the best nutrient density of 21 commonly consumed fruits. The fuzzy fruit is also sky-high in both soluble and insoluble fiber, both of which are essential for promoting heart health, regulating digestion, and lowering cholesterol levels—that’s a winning trifecta.
