It’s National Peach Month!

When I found out it was National Peach Month I had to write about it because I LOVE peaches. Interestingly enough, the holiday was founded on March 16, 1982 by President Ronald Reagan. He made it very clear the holiday was all about adding nutritious fruits to your every day diet.  Check below for some interesting fun facts about why we love these juicy fruits:

 

  1. Peaches are only 39 calories! They have no saturated fats and contain healthy vitamins and minerals. They’re perfect for a guilt-free afternoon snack.
  2. Fresh peaches are a great source of antioxidants and vitamin C. Vitamin C helps your immune system fight off infections.
  3. Peaches also are a good source of vitamin A.  Vitamin A helps keep your vision in tiptop shape.
