Bananas are one of the most nutritious fruits available year-round. bananas are a healthy food choice for both kids and adults.

Nutrients in Banana:

Bananas make for a nutritious and healthy food choice because they are a good source of fiber, are low in sodium, cholesterol, calories, and contain almost no
fat. Because bananas are loaded with potassium (422 mg per medium banana), bananas are a great post-workout snack for those who strength train or engage in
cardio exercise to help replace potassium lost through sweating. Bananas are also a good source of:

Bananas provide trace amounts of calcium, zinc, copper, iron, vitamin E, and selenium. In addition, bananas also contain fructo-oligosaccharide, a resistant starch
that acts as a prebiotic. Prebiotics promote a healthy gut and help the body more easily absorb nutrients from food.

can be considered a part of a healthy diet.
