Fruit: The New Cookie


May 09, 2010

Make like a kid and snack on produce instead

Attention, adults: Time to take a healthy eating lesson from the young ones in your life. Fresh fruit has beat out cookies as the top snack food among children ages 2 to 12, according to a recent survey by market research firm NPD Group. Adults prefer gum and chocolate; in 2005, only 28.7% of grown women ate the recommended two or more servings of fruit per day. Toss a portable piece like a kiwifruit, banana, or pear into your purse so you have a healthy snack at the ready.
