Perezito.com's nutrition expert Margaux J. Rathbun wants to help parents feed their parents with the right foods by showcasing a specialty food every week.

This week, it's all about apples!

Margaux says:

An apple a day keeps the doctor away! This saying is totally true because apples are loaded with health-promoting nutrients, making them the perfect food for your kids! Apples are packed with vitamin C and pectin, a soluble fiber that helps to manage cholesterol levels. Apples are also loaded with an antioxidant called glutathione, which makes these tasty fruits perfect for keeping your kid's immune system strong. In addition to this nutrient, apples have compounds that have been shown to promote healthy lungs. They also help your kids stay "regular" due to their fiber content. Did you know that the skins of apples contain the most fiber? Another fun fact about apples is that Red Delicious and Granny Smith apples have been shown to contain the most antioxidants out of all the apple varieties. Give your kids an apple today!

Deeeelish!
