“My Kids Eat 3 Bananas A Day Each!”  

 

That sure caught our attention at CaregiverAsia when our friend, Ellen, lamented to Charlotte, our favourite nutritionist, on her predicament. Surely, that can’t be healthy, but what did our nutritionist say? The following is the actual exchange between Ellen and Charlotte.

The good thing about bananas is that they are high in potassium, so they are very good for kids and everyone in general… especially if you have high blood pressure!
