4 ways to celebrate the wonder of fruits and vegetables
Zespri SunGold kiwifruit
These days, the supermarket shelves seem to be stocked with more options than ever before. Ready meals, sauces, dips – the choices are limitless! But whilst it’s great to introduce our palates to exotic foods and flavours, it’s also important to remember the simple things in life. Fruits and vegetables have been a staple of the human diet for years, and for good reason. Not only are they natural and nutritious, but they add colour and flavour to each and every dish. In this post, we’ll suggest 4 new ways to celebrate our favourite of the bunch – the mighty Zespri™ SunGold™ kiwifruit!
1. Listen more
According to the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), fruit and vegetables are ‘essential for healthy lives’. They bring variety to our diets, which is not only good news for us, but for the entire planet. We love combining Zespri™ SunGold™ kiwifruit with other delicious fruits and vegetables to create unique flavour combinations. You’ll never be bored when you’ve got a fridge full of kiwis!
2. Eat more
The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends consuming at least 400g of fruit and vegetables every day to get the health and nutrition benefits our bodies need. However, only 14.1% of Europeans aged 15+ achieve this. Two average sized Zespri™ SunGold™ kiwifruit weigh almost 200g – which is a very good start!
