Fruit baskets could be the perfect gift for children
Published on 19/12/2011

Fruit baskets which combine the excitement and enjoyment of a gift with healthy nutrition could be the perfect option for those people who are looking to buy presents for children this Christmas.

Selection boxes may be the recent fad, but fruit baskets are more traditional and could have a much more positive impact on the health of a child.

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is calling for consistent regulations to stop children being exposed to junk food advertising and the subsequent adverse health effects chocolate and sweets can have on their development.

"Like wolves in sheep's clothing, junk food manufacturers are preying on children and targeting them with fun and games they know will hold their attention," said Mubeen Bhutta, the BHF's policy manager.

The charity stated that a packet of chocolate buttons contains more fat than a hamburger.

Fruit baskets will also provide a substantial proportion of an individual's five a day, which the World Health Organisation states can help address a wide range of public health concerns.
