My older son discovered kiwi this summer. I’d tried to give it to him before and was met with horrific face contortions, dramatic gagging gestures and rude noises.
However, for some reason this summer, it’s become his favorite thing and that’s great because kiwi, native to New Zealand, has more vitamin C than an orange. It’s also a great source of dietary fiber and potassium.
Eating just a couple of kiwifruit each day may significantly lower your risk for blood clots and reduce the amount of fats (triglycerides) in your blood, therefore helping to protect cardiovascular health, studies show.
My son doesn’t know any of this. He just knows they taste good. He still doesn’t love the texture of the skin, but I’ve taught him how to cut the fruit in half around the middle, then use a spoon to scoop out the flesh and eat it that way!
