The Skinny On: Mini Produce

I am a sucker for anything mini.

Mini-vegetables and fruits are popping up all over the produce aisles. Just yesterday I saw a basket of mini apples. It really was the cutest thing I ever did see, except that I couldn't help but imagine where did the mini apple come from? Imagine a mini world: There are mini workers gleefully singing as they pluck the mini apples from the mini trees.

Regardless of how they came to be, mini fruits and vegetables are a hit in the produce aisles.

For a few tips to consider when buying mini produce:

  • Try to stay organic for mini produce. The surface area could be laden with pesticides, particularly in ratio to the amount you actually eat.
  • Because of its size, mini produce typically goes bad quicker- so eat up.
  • For whatever reason (maybe mini workers have big pay checks) mini tends to be more expensive. So before buying, make sure that cute is worth it to you.
  • Mini fruits and veggies are full of nutrients. Think of them as the concentrated version of their larger counterparts, but when it comes to your fruits and vegetable intake, less is not more.
  • Fit's Tip: Finicky Children? Mini produce is a great way to entice kids to eating fruits and veggies. It's already kid sized.
