Fruit imposters!

Beware of enticing pictures of fruit on packages of cereal & other foods.

They may be nothing more than “gobs” sweetened with sugar, fruit flavorings & other additives.

  • Check labels: “bits” or “crunchlets” are not fruit; “fruit puree” is mostly sugar
  • Instead add fresh fruit to your cereal & other foods…tis the season for fresh fruit!
