Fall Fruit Finds

Now that fall has arrived, there are some fabulous fruits in season. Here’s what they can do for a dancer’s diet.

Portable and delicious, apples are full of fiber. One medium-size apple provides nearly 20 percent of the USDA’s recommended daily fiber intake.

Pears are best eaten when soft to the touch. In October, they’re full of flavor and actually contain even more fiber than apples.

Late-season grapes are especially sweet. A delicious bag of red or green grapes contains loads of polyphenols, which have antioxidant properties.

Boost your Vitamin A intake by eating a persimmon. Vitamin A helps maintain skin health, cell growth and good vision and fights infection.
