The fruit in April is Avocados!

Fun Facts and Banana Bites about Avocados:

Did you know??

  • Avocados are actually a fruit and not a vegetable because they have the large seed or pit in the center of them.
  • Avocados are full of "good" fats that will keep your heart healthy and strong.
  • They also have about 20 different vitamins and minerals that will help keep your body alive and working.
  • Avocados grow on trees in countries that have warm temperatures most of the year.
  • When you buy an avocado pick it up and give it a little squeeze! A ripe fruit should have a dark purple skin and should feel a bit soft rather than firm.
  • After peeling an avocado the fruit may turn a brownish color when it is left out in the air. Squeezing a little lime or lemon juice over the dish will help prevent this browning and keep its beautiful green color.
  • Avocados are yummy sliced on top of a salad or made into a sandwich. They are also a good snack for young children because they have a soft texture and a wonderful creamy taste kids love!
