SEASONAL ways to FIVE-A-DAY

With summer getting into its stride, home-grown plump berries and juicy stoned fruits are ripe for eating. Take your pick of NECTARINES, GOOSEBERRIES and STRAWBERRIES

NECTARINES

This smoother sibling of the peach is juicy enough now to enjoy straight from the fruit bowl – or add slices to salads and desserts.

Nutritional reasons to buy

Nectarines are a great choice for boosting vitamin C intake – just one fruit supplies 42% of our daily need for this vitamin, good intakes of which have been linked to reducing tiredness, as well as being excellent for our skin. Vitamin C also helps the body absorb iron, so adding a sliced nectarine to a bowl of wholegrain cereal that’s fortified with iron makes a nutritious start to the day. The low-calorie, high-fibre profile of nectarines makes them especially good if we’re watching our weight. Much of the fibre they contain is classed as soluble – the type that’s linked to lower blood cholesterol levels and better blood sugar control.
