Hello, I am Karen Marie the Salubrious RD, a Nutrition Agent with the LSU AgCenter here in Jefferson Parish
Have you felt THE cooler days? Fall is here and it is apple season.
Apples are a fruit and according to the USDA ½ of our Plate needs to be Fruits & Vegetables
This is the My Plate. And the apple needs to be showing up on your plate this season.
Because apples are in season they are more plentiful and less expensive to purchase.
An Apple provides a lot of nutrition. If you eat your apple fresh, make sure you wash it before you eat it.
Apples come range of sizes, all shades of red, green and yellow are nutritious and delicious
Focus on Fruits 10 tips Nutrition Education Series reminds us to include 5 or more servings of fruit and vegetables
For more information on this and other nutrition topics visit us on line or call our office.
