Why Eat Apples?

Benefits of Apples: They are Great Preventative measures.

Asthma Help

One recent study shows that children with asthma who drank apple juice on a daily basis suffered from less wheezing than children who drank apple juice only once per month. Another study showed that children born to women who eat a lot of apples during pregnancy have lower rates of asthma than children whose mothers ate few apples.

Alzheimer's Prevention

A study on mice at Cornell University found that the quercetin in apples may protect brain cells from the kind of free radical damage that may lead to Alzheimer's disease.

Lower Cholesterol

The pectin in apples lowers LDL ("bad") cholesterol. People who eat two apples per day may lower their cholesterol by as much as 16 percent.

Lung Cancer Prevention

According to a study of 10,000 people, those who ate the most apples had a 50 percent lower risk of developing lung cancer. Researchers believe this is due to the high levels of the flavonoids quercetin and naringin in apples.

Breast Cancer Prevention

A Cornell University study found that rats who ate one apple per day reduced their risk of breast cancer by 17 percent. Rats fed three apples per day reduced their risk by 39 percent and those fed six apples per day reduced their risk by 44 percent.

Colon Cancer Prevention

One study found that rats fed an extract from apple skins had a 43 percent lower risk of colon cancer. Other research shows that the pectin in apples reduces the risk of colon cancer and helps maintain a healthy digestive tract.

Liver Cancer Prevention

Research found that rats fed an extract from apple skins had a 57 percent lower risk of liver cancer.

Diabetes Management

The pectin in apples supplies galacturonic acid to the body which lowers the body's need for insulin and may help in the management of diabetes.

Weight Loss

A Brazilian study found that women who ate three apples or pears per day lost more weight while dieting than women who did not eat fruit while dieting.

Apple Toddler Craft....

Apple Print Craft

What you'll need:

  • 2 apples

  • Orange, red and green craft paint

  • Construction paper

  • Knife (to cut the apples in half) *Grown-ups only!

  • Paint brushes

  • Paper towels

How to make your Apple Print Craft:

  1. Have an adult cut an apple in half (from the top down).

  2. Press the apple halves on a paper towel to drain away some of the moisture (without this step the paint doesn't stick right).

  3. Paint the apple halves red or orange using a lot of paint.

  4. Press the apples down hard on the construction paper and wiggle them just a little bit.

  5. Paint on some stems using green paint to finish off your apple picture!

  6. Optional: cut the apple in half across the middle and look for the star made by the apple seeds! Making apple prints with the apple cut this way is sometimes easier for younger children because they have a bigger area to grip onto without it interfering with the picture.
