We had kiwis for our healthy snack this week.

Kiwis have lots of fiber, keeping you full and vitamin C to keep your immune system strong. They also have zinc, a nutrient to keep your hair, skin, teeth and nails healthy. Kiwis have a sweet and tart flavor with 46 calories per kiwi. It’s a great low calorie treat.

Kiwis were originally called Chinese gooseberries. New Zealanders renamed the fruit after their national bird.

Our healthy snack is provided by Bause Catered Events in Pottstown with the help of a grant from the Pottstown Area Health and Wellness Foundation.
