Eating right is something I try to do all year long.

There are times when I indulge in the occasional treat.

Balance is key.

I’m a bit less active in winter. So I seek out foods that satisfy my urge to snack while providing a healthy choice. Florida Strawberries fit the bill!

Sweet Florida Strawberries are available in stores all winter long from December through April each year.
If you don’t see strawberries from Florida where you shop, you can ask their produce or store manager to please carry Florida Strawberries.

Florida Strawberries

Florida Strawberries deliver a boost of vitamins and nutrients to keep us going all winter long.

  • Eight medium strawberries contain more vitamin C than one orange. Vitamin C helps boost your immune system just in time for cold and flu season.
  • These little red powerhouses provide an excellent source of folic acid that helps the body metabolize protein. Protein from food helps build muscle, supports the nervous system and keeps our minds healthy and alert.
  • Florida Strawberries are virtually fat free and contain no cholesterol. That makes strawberries a perfect addition to salads, smoothies and power bowls for healthier meals.
  • According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, nutrient-dense foods like Florida Strawberries provide the greatest amounts of vitamins and minerals with the fewest calories.
