Both fresh and frozen fruits are high in fiber, packed with disease-fighting antioxidants, and loaded with vitamins and minerals.
When you want a healthy grab-and-go snack, opt for fresh fruit. It also makes a great side dish for any meal. The downside is that it can be expensive, and it may lose some nutritional value while sitting on store shelves.
Frozen fruit is frozen at its peak nutritional value, it’s often less expensive than fresh fruit, and it won’t go bad. So if you’re trying to stay on a budget, frozen fruit is a good choice. It’s also ideal for making smoothies and healthy desserts.
The bottom line: Eating fruit, fresh or frozen, is great for your health. Get as many colorful fruits in your diet as possible.
