DOLE Fruit Facts
Did you know by serving your kids pineapple you are providing them with an excellent source of vitamin C?

For children who love to eat, let them eat their fill of DOLE Jarred Fruit, limiting only higher calorie foods. Fruit combats childhood obesity. Studies at Tufts and Baylor Universities link high fruit and vegetable consumption with lower childhood body mass indices (BMIs). Unlike junk food, which is high in calories and low in nutrients, fruit and veggies are low in calories but high in fiber, water and nutrients. Filling kids up with DOLE Jarred Fruit while meeting nutrient needs will make them feel more satisfied with fewer calories.

Be creative with presentation. Give young children cut DOLE Jarred fruits and let them create funny faces or animals.

If your child eats only a little dinner and then complains of hunger at bedtime, offer a piece of DOLE Jarred fruit as a tasty and healthy solution.

Studies show that adequate vitamin C intake may help maintain a strong immune system. A food that is rich in vitamin C contains at least 12 milligrams of vitamin C per serving.
