IT’S important to start the day off right with a nutrient-rich breakfast. For a refreshing way to jump-start your morning, why not incorporate canned peaches, like Del Monte. They are picked and packed at the peak of ripeness, and provide garden quality nutrients, including vitamins A and C, which help protect your immune system.
“Canning allows us to enjoy the sweet flavor of peaches all year round without skimping on nutrition,” said Sarah Ludmer, RD, LN, Nutritionist at Del Monte Foods. “Studies show that canned peaches actually have more folate and beta-carotene than fresh. Plus, there’s no mess. Canned peaches are peeled and cut, which means they are ready to add instant flavor to your favorite dishes.”
