My five Favorite Fruits


Smartly to vegetables, Fruits do not always strike the typical kid as a common food to eat.  I mean they probably are more common than vegetables for a sense.  But it is not as in common as potato chips and candy.  Fruit has a much sweeter taste than vegetables, because of the natural sugar that fills them up while they grow.  Which is probably why typical kids eat them more.  But overweight kids by me show no interest in either fruit or veggies, but with a few exceptions.  Unlike veggies, some fruits do not need that extra topping or glaze.  They are just naturally good.  My five favorite fruits are Peaches, Pears, Apples, Blueberries and plumbs.  And although some need that topping to earn their spot on this list, I think they are an excellent snack choice for any child.


Like broccoli, peaches are my favorite fruit for various reasons.  First, its taste, it has the sweetest taste of all fruits in my opinion.  Secondly, it is very juicy in a sense where juice will fly out of your mouth in the first bite.  Thirdly, I love its color, Orange is my favorite color, and in my opinion, it totally elevated it.  I first started getting into peaches when I started drinking peach nectar.  The smooth, juicy taste of the nectar made me fall in love with the taste of peaches, and it led me to start eating peaches.  I would say peaches are a great afterschool snack instead of a candy bar because it is refreshing, it tastes sweet, and it is healthy.  It is three benefits in one!


            Pears came close with peaches to be my favorite fruit.  They are very good.  Similarly, to peaches, they are very juicy.  But they have a different taste to peaches; it is very sweet and crisp, like an apple.  But it is sweeter than an apple.  The color of the pear’s ranges from green all the way to light brown, but it does not really affect the taste.  I started getting into pears a little while before I got into peaches.  However, I got into them the same way, by drinking the nectar.  The crisp taste of the pear and the smoothness in the nectar got me into the taste as well.  Pears are more of an after-dinner kind of fruit I my opinion.  In fact, you can make dessert out of pears.  I had this pie once with pears cream and ricotta cheese and it was excellent.


            Apples had always had a love hate relationship to me smartly to carrots.  However, apples do taste better and a lot sweeter.  The reason why I have a love hate relationship with them is because of their bitter taste as well.  It tastes terrible.  But with a few toppings and exceptions, apples could go great with other foods.  First off is apple juice and cider.  I love them, their taste is like biting into an apple all over again, only a little sweeter.  So, you would have a nice, refreshing drink but at the same time, it is healthy.  Secondly, apples could be used in lots of baked goods such as pies and straddles.  And tit totally elevates them in both taste and texture.  Apples alone I would describe as a great home snack.  However, if you have time at night, make a delicious creation.  As they always say, an apple a day keeps the doctor away!


            Blueberries are another fruit that I have a love hate relationship with.  But different from the apples.  I do not like the taste at all by themselves, it has to tart for me.  However, there are plenty of things your ca does with blueberries to elevate them and is why I like them.  First off is blueberry pancakes, and although I do not like them, it really is good.  It gives the pancakes a nice, tart taste to them that fruit lovers love.  But at the same time, it makes them sweeter.  Secondly, like apples, they are commonly used in baked goods such as pies, bread and muffins, and they are pretty good.  Finally, you could make blueberries and whip cream.  An all-time classic that everyone will love.  The creaminess of the whip cream makes the blueberries even sweeter, especially with the sugary, creamy taste of the whip cream.  Blueberries are small so I would categorize them as an all-day snack.  But like apples, you can make creative concoctions for dessert.


            Plums were an unexpected one to put down, even for me.  But I am glad I am putting it on now.  Plums have one of the juiciest tastes ever.  I literally gobbled down one.  I never liked plums through my childhood until 2 months ago.  I was asked to try it by someone very special, and I did, and it was amazing.  You do not need anything to satisfy plums in my opinion, they are just good the way they are.  Plums to me could be a great after school snack because it is small and light.  But it could also be a dessert snack.  And it would be very good for you.
