Eating Healthy with Fruit Cocktail

Dec 24th 2014 at 11:16 PM

Fruit cocktail is a delicious and healthy alternative to high calorie snacks. A can of fruity mix is composed of a variety of fruits which can give your family an additional dose of nutrition. Initially it began as a way to preserve bruised and cut fruit but now it is offered by many food brands and is a favourite addition to almost every kitchen. Here is the guide to help you understand how it can benefit the health of your family while satisfying their taste-buds.

A high dose of vitamins and minerals

The fruity delight in a canned fruit cocktail offers a good bunch of healthy vitamins and minerals. A can generally contains perfectly ripe pears, cherries, pineapple, peaches and grapes. Therefore, a can of cocktail can provide you with:

· Calcium
· Potassium
· Copper
· Magnesium
· Iron
· Niacin
· Folate
· Zinc
· Vitamin A
· Vitamin B1
· Vitamin B2
· Vitamin B6
· Vitamin C
· Vitamin E
· Vitamin K

Calories

The calorie content of the fruit cocktail varies with the quantity. A small fruity-can may typically contain 40 to 60 calories. Products from a better brand have moderate calories with no fat content. The difference in the calorie content depends on whether the fruits have been preserved in syrup, water or juice. The amount of sugar, corn starches and other preservatives can make drastic changes to the dietary content. Brands which use sugar in moderation take better care of your health.

Daily fruit servings

2 to 4 servings of fruit per day are recommended by the FDA where one serving is considered 1/2 cup of fruit. The fruit cocktails come in different servings depending on the size of the can. Therefore, you can divide the entire can into appropriate proportions to maintain a healthy intake. Women, expecting mothers and kids have slightly different needs and should take more fruits; for example, four servings. Here also, the fruity cans provide a healthier and tastier alternative to them to consume fruits.

Excellent snack

Fruit cocktail whether store bought or made at home can help you to maintain a healthy snacking habit. It is obviously better to consume fruits than chips or chocolates which have high carb and fat content. You can use it as a snack between meals to keep you fuller and active. It is the healthiest way to satiate the hunger.

Adding fruit cocktail to your daily nutritional plan is a great idea that can help you consume daily recommended fruit servings at budget. You can also make the cocktail at home by widening your options with kiwi, orange, apple, nectarine and mango, which can also enhance the taste.
