ZESPRI Kiwifruit is the most nutrient dense superfruit, according to a Rutgers University study and the New York Times’ “Overall Nutrition Quality Index.” Rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber, kiwifruit is an easy way to provide your children with the nourishment they need and crave.

Jamie Oliver’s website declares kiwifruit as “low in calories, low in sugar, low in fat and rich in fiber content. Kiwifruit is rich and nutritious, so it is a good choice.” Just one serving of kiwifruit contains more potassium than a banana, the vitamin C of two oranges and more fiber than a bowl of cereal.

ZESPRI Kiwifruit’s benefits also include working as a digestive aid while boosting immune health. And for pregnant women, ZESPRI Kiwifruit is a natural source of folic acid, which is needed to prevent neural defects in babies (women need folic acid both before and during pregnancy), as well as brain and cognitive development in children.

To assist in the growing obesity rate with children, ZESPRI Kiwifruit is a good diabetic option having a moderate to low glycemic index of 52, per 120 grams. The Lance Armstrong Foundation states kiwifruit are “ideal for weight management and diabetes control.”

ZESPRI invariably delivers premium quality kiwifruit. Its intensive, hands-on, grower-owned community in New Zealand ensures a bounty of premium, plump and juicy kiwifruit. Offering a variety of kiwifruit, ZESPRI provides Green Kiwifruit (tangy-sweet flavor), Gold Kiwifruit (tropical-sweet) and Organic Kiwifruit.
