Bananas may help cure kids’ asthma. Blueberries build better brains. And dried plums builds better bones. Could there be better reasons to start eating fruit?
Going bananas may help kids breathe easier (too bad they may not be with us much longer). New research shows that children who ate just one banana a day had a 34% less chance of developing asthmatic symptoms. Early banana consumption may also be associated with lower risk of childhood leukemia. Bananas’ fiber, potassium, vitamin C and B6 content support heart health. Bananas also contain tryptophan, an amino acid which may play a role in preserving your memory and boosting your mood.
