Fruit is a good source of energy and a high fiber food. We should all eat at least 1 to 3 pieces of fruit each day to maintain a healthy diet. Most fruit contains little, if any, fats, so make great building blocks for a healthy eating regime. (The exceptions to little fat being avocado and coconuts.)
