Apricot season at Hearty HealthJanuary 2nd, 2018
Yum – it is well and truly apricot season at Hearty Health! This Summer, apricots feature in our Summer menu for children in child care to enjoy.
Delivered to our door directly from the wholesale fruit and vegetable market, our apricots are as fresh as fresh can be and turned into a selection of snacks and meals that are rated highly.
Packed with goodness:
Hearty Health feature apricots in their meals not only because they are in season and are delicious, but because they are so healthy for growing children. Apricots contain Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium and Potassium and are rich in fibre and antioxidants ensuring we are getting a big dose of yummy goodness.
Apricot season at Hearty Health keeps children healthy by:
- enhancing vision
- keeps the immune system in check
- protects and revitalises skin
- keeps the digestion system ticking along
- helps to reduce the bad cholesterol content in the body which protects the heart
- helps the body get rid of toxins that can collect over time
- help strengthen growing bones
How to buy apricots:
Our Hearty Health Chefs recommend that you look for apricots with a rich orange colour and avoid those that are pale and yellow. Fruit should be slightly soft. If they are too firm they have not been tree-ripened, and tree-ripened fruits always taste best. For the most antioxidants, choose fully ripened fruit.
Storing apricots for best quality:
You can store apricots in the refrigerator but they will retain better flavour if kept at room temperature. They can also bruise easily so try to avoid stacking them on top of each other.
A quick apricot snack for Summer:
With the Summer weather heating up this week, try blending fresh apricots with some orange juice and freeze in ice cubes or icy pole molds for a quick and delicious afternoon snack with the kids. Apricot season is a yummy season at Hearty Health.
