Most of us show tantrums when offered fruits but do not feel guilty after eating them. They act as a healthy snack, rich in vital supplements, such as vitamins, folic acid, zinc and phosphorus. Fruits come in handy because they can be eaten raw directly after washing. Also, they get used as toppings in various dessert items, such as custard, ice creams, etc.
