100-15 oz cans of fruit for $16.00
24-15 oz cans for fruit for $3.84 v. $25.92
According to the USDA, adults should eat at least 2 servings of fruit each day. And canned fruit can absolutely be just as healthy (if not more) than its fresh counterpart. With fresh fruit, the vitamin C content tends to diminish while being stored (the vitamin is easily destroyed by exposure to air). Canned fruit, however, will still retain much of its vitamin C. Fresh fruit can cost a pretty penny when out of season, not something I have to remind Michiganders of.
Save $94.00 and provide for the recommended dietary needs of adults and children alike, especially when snow flies and fresh fruit becomes difficult to afford.
