Green apples are wildly popular amongst the health-nuts, and it is no wonder why. Containing less sugar than red apples, green apples are arguably healthier. With a GI rating of 39, green apples are a low glycemic food, providing a slow release of energy throughout the day. It is also the fruit of choice for diabetics.
A great way to help children enjoy green apples is by dipping them into pure peanut butter. The high protein content in peanut butter will keep your child satiated, while the green apple provides just the right amount of tart to cut the cloyingness of the peanut butter. Quick guilt-free snack that does not require cooking! ;)
