Pomegranate — an Antioxidant Powerhouse
Research shows that commercial pomegranate juice has 3 times the antioxidant activity as red wine and green tea. Antioxidants have been shown to help in the prevention of cancer and heart disease. Try to incorporate pomegranate juice into your children's diets. Once they are older than four years old and less likely to choke, you can serve them pomegranate fruit.
