Just this past week, we at Kiddos school lunches have added PLUMS to the roster of fruit sides that come standard with most every Kiddos meal. Some of the feedback we have gotten was that "the children were confused as to what plums are". Aside from that being a very endearing piece of feedback, we decided to also take that seriously and look up some information about plums to share with you. We encourage all to read up and try a few as plums are only in season for the fall!
Plums are in the same family as nectarines and peaches!
Plums are also related to almonds
The dried version of a plum is called a prune or a 'dried plum'
Plums are packed with Vitamin C and Vitamin K
Plums also help with weight loss!
There are over 2,000 varities of plums in existence today
