Very Blueberry

July 13, 2016

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hopsital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having an awesome day. Did you know that July is National Blueberry Month? Blueberries are one of my favorite fruits because they not only taste great, but they’re great for you. So in honor of National Blueberry Month, we have some fun facts about blueberries that we’d like to share with you. Enjoy!

• Blueberries are full of fiber, vitamins, and minerals.

• Blueberries are sometimes used as a natural food dye. Blue coloring, anyone?

• The states that grow the highest number of blueberries are Michigan, Oregon, and Washington.

• Whether you want blueberry pie, blueberry scones, blueberry muffins, blueberry yogurts, or blueberry pancakes (to name a few), blueberries make a yummy and healthy addition to so many snacks and meals!

We hope you have a critterrific blueberry-filled month!
