It’s Crunch Time!
Biting into a crisp, cool apple isn’t just good exercise for your teeth – it’s good for your whole body, in so many ways. The old adage stated that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” but we’re not fans of keeping the doctor away for too long! A regular check-up with your doctor (at least once a year!) is always a good idea. You can help your body score near full marks at that check-up though, by ensuring you eat well – and that includes ensuring you eat enough fresh fruit and vegetables, every day. ‘
Big Bites for Good Health
Packed with all-important vitamins and minerals, your everyday apple includes crunchy goodness, and: Calcium, Vitamins A, B1 B2, B6, C and K, Manganese, Copper and Potassium. Apples are also a good source of fibre. They’re good for your heart, and an all-important addition to your diet if you’re looking for healthy snacks while trying to lose weight. Eating at least an apple a day can also help to keep your gut healthy, while serving your nerves and cells well too.
An Apple Every Day, Our Favourite Way
