pears nutrient rich

from mom’s pear tree

Pears are nutrient-dense and an excellent source of fiber! One medium pear provides 6 grams of fiber, or about 24% of your daily needs, which can help you feel satisfied longer between meals and snacks! According to the DGA, the average American adult should consume approximately 2 cups of fruit daily (based on a reference 2000 calorie diet).

 One medium-sized pear supplies ½ of your daily fruit needs!
A medium sized pear (about 166 grams) is a nutrient-dense food that contains only 100 calories, and is fat free. A nutrient-dense food is any food that provides vital nutrients (such as vitamins and minerals), but relatively few calories. Nutrient-dense foods are also usually higher in fiber and water, components that tend to make us feel full faster and for longer.
