When I was young, after lunch or dinner , my mother would prepare some fruit, and insist that we had to eat it. She said it was good for my health. Then it become a habit to me to have some fruit after meal.Now I become parents, I do the same things to my children. Because I know that fruit is good to us. Some fruit even has some kind of treatment to certain illness. An apple a day , keeps a doctor away. So I insist that they have to eat some fruit everyday. I do not know whether everyone have the same habit as me. Would you like to share it?

Fruits - These cashews are rich in vitamins and could be eaten plain or as juice and used to make wine
We have a banana after each meal and other fruits during any time in the day. Fruits are an essential part in our diet and there is not a single day that we will be without any fruit. I have my own fruit garden and that makes it even easier to ensure that we have fruits round the year.

You are most welcome. There is no market for my home grown fruits and so I distribute them to friends, family and neighbours.

Hallo...it's a good habit..but we never eat fruit before meal. Wont it be better to eat the fruit after meal? If we eat fruit before meal will make us full, so we can't eat much on main menu...do you think so? Thank you for your response ..Happy lunar new year!!!Gong xi gong xi

Oh really...it can help to loose weight? I think it depends on what kind of fruit you are eating. I only know that some fruits like orange, pineapple, lemon, will help me to clear away all the fat and oily things, but some fruit will even make me put on weight....like avocado, durian, etc...but usually I wont eat this kind of fruit after meal. I will eat apple, orange, melon,etc.

Eating fruit after or with your meal is a GREAT habit! I used to eat a great deal of fruit as a child and getting older I neglected this practice. My health has suffered greatly from it. My dr. highly suggests fruit with every meal. Especially since I can't stand veggies that much. Your digestive system will run smoother if you have this habit.

Hi...I think maybe after you become parent, then you will understand your parents good intention. And you will start doing the same, to insit your children to have the fruit after meal everyday!!! I think this is a good habit , no harm to pass it to the next generation...do you agree? Happy mylotting!!!
