Healthy Breakfast Fruit Recipe

Understanding the components of a healthy breakfast is crucial for building a better breakfast -- and while fruit is a healthy choice, it shouldn’t be the only food that fills your empty stomach.

When it comes to healthy breakfast fruits, the options are endless. Good news, breakfast lovers, wake up to a delicious and nutritious breakfast - Low-fat yogurt dresses up this tasty fruit cup.  Though no need to limit those delicious dishes to the morning hours. 

Fruit’s Benefits


Fruit is packed with vitamins and minerals, which help keep the body functioning at its optimal level. The sweet treats are also filled with fiber, which helps promote normal digestive patterns and contributes to lower cholesterol levels. When choosing fruit, select fresh or unsweetened frozen varieties when possible. Although canned fruits will suffice in a pinch, they tend to be a bit higher in sugar and sodium. Some fruit juices are also filled with sugar and sodium, so always check the nutrition label before gulping a glass.
