Guess what I have been picking my grandmother's garden? Tomatoes! Ok that isn't true it was actually peaches. I know I say this every time I talk about a fruit or vegetable but it is amazing what you can grow at home. Anyway as we now have lots of them to eat at home here are the benefits of peaches.
One peach contains less than 60 Kcal and is a great snack that can fill you up in between meals. You can chop it up and have it on top of your morning porridge or have it in fruit salad!
One peach contains 2-3g of fibre. It is recommended that women eat at least 25g of fibre a day so this is 10% of your daily fibre. Fibre is an extremely important nutrient that helps keep your digestive system healthy and working properly.
Peaches are a great source of vitamins and minerals. They contain lots of Vitamin A and Vitamin C. They are also a good source of potassium and magnesium.
Peaches are another fruit that are a great source of antioxidants. One of the best antioxidants in peaches is called chlorogenic acid. This can help your body reduce the damage caused by pollutants and help reduce the effects of ageing
Peaches contain lots of Vitamin A and Vitamin C which are two very important nutrients for your skin! Vitamin A helps your skin keep its moisture and Vitamin C helps protect your skin from damage from things like the sun and pollution.
