*When you use apple, keep the skin because this is where you find the most fibre.
*Strawberries and kiwis are both very high in vitamin C and they help absorb iron and are good for your immune system.
*When choosing grapes, pick those with the red skin because they have a lot of anti-oxidants in the skin.
*You can vary the fruits by using pears or mangoes, just make sure that you choose the more colourful fruits because they have more anti-oxidants.
*Add yoghurt for calcium and top the salad with wheat germ that you can easily get from the supermarket.
*Wheat germ has a lot of vitamin E which is a natural anti-oxidant. It’s also high in folate and zinc which is important for your immune system.
*You can also complement your fruit salad with a slice of toast. Use just a little non-sweetened or low-sugar jam.
