What's in season? Blueberries!

I just recently discovered blueberries. They had somehow ended up on my list of foods that I don’t eat (along with coconut, tapioca, and anything with a custard-like consistency). I’m always hearing about how blueberries are a super food, filled with antioxidants, so I picked some up at Trader Joe’s and decided to give them a try. What a great decision that was! Juicy and sweet, I can’t get enough!

Learn all about blueberries at The Blueberry Council.

Product DetailsRead about blueberries in this classic children’s book, Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey.

How to eat blueberries:
  • With your fingers, of course!
  • Use toothpicks or fun appetizer sticks to pick up the blueberries (and work on fine motor skills, too!)

Let’s expand to other foods and textures:
  • Top your plain or vanilla yogurt with a handful of blueberries
