9 Healthy Benefits of Bananas Children Should Know

March is National Nutrition Month, and to celebrate we have nine valuable tips that you can utilize in your point of purchase materials to market to children. As grown ups we understand the value of bananas and why it’s important to eat your fruits and vegetables. Targeting these fun facts at children will encourage them to be more excited about their health and will have them asking their parents to buy more organic bananas.

Nutritional Value

  • Potassium – Bananas are rich in potassium, a mineral essential for healthy heart, muscle, kidney, and digestive system.
  • Vitamin C – Vitamin C is known for its antioxidant properties. It also protects against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, and eye disease.
  • Vitamin B6 – It converts carbohydrates to glucose and thus maintains healthy levels of blood sugar in the body. Vitamin B6 also maintains healthy brain and normal nerve functions and helps break down and digest proteins.
  • Fiber – Bananas contain soluble fiber which lowers cholesterol.

Health Benefits

  • Better Brain Power – Research has shown that children who ate bananas at least three times a day performed well in their exams. Potassium rich bananas help to boost brain power in children.
  • Good for the Heart – Bananas contain potassium, which helps prevent muscle cramps and other cardiovascular diseases.
  • Healthy Bones – High Potassium content in bananas helps to neutralize the high amounts of sodium in our diet. This prevents the weakening of bones.
  • Better Eyesight – People who consume bananas regularly have lower incidence of vision problems. Bananas help to protect our eyesight.
  • Regulate Blood Sugar – Bananas help to curb the sweet tooth and help patients’ diabetes and blood sugar problems.

And don’t forget about sampling. Sampling is one of the best ways to seal the deal and increase sales.
