It's National Nutrition Month!

Can't find fresh? Go Frozen! 

Nutritionally speaking, frozen fruits and vegetables are often superior to the “fresh” 
ones you find at the supermarket. 

Frozen fruits are picked fresh at their peak ripeness and are frozen 
immediately which seals in nutrients. 

  

On average, food travels 1,500 miles from farm to grocery.

At that time food can lose up to 45 percent of its nutritional value.

If possible find fruits that are in season, if not frozen fruits are good too!
