My older son LOVES kiwi in his lunch. It’s a good thing that it’s in season now, too. I pack it with a plastic knife and spoon, so he can cut it in half horizontally and scoop out the good stuff with his spoon. You can eat the skin, but most people prefer to skip it.
Kiwi, native to Australia, are packed with vitamin C. In fact, one kiwi provides 273 percent of your recommended daily allowance, and studies have shown that eating kiwi may even help to prevent or ward off colds.
They also have vitamin K, vitamin E, folate and potassium. They also have a ton of antioxidants and are a great source of fiber.
Studies have also shown that eating kiwi helps lower blood pressure and reduces the risk of blood clots.
Kiwis are usually eaten raw as is, but you can slice them into a salad or mix into a fruit salad.
