HEALTH BENEFITS OF PEARS
Many doctors recommend pears for babies when they are weaning and being introduced to baby food because they are a low acid fruit that is unlikely to cause digestive issues in little bellies and because pear allergy is relatively rare.
Pears are very high in fiber, which can help keep baby regular. This nutrient-packed fruit contains antioxidants like vitamin C and copper, which fight off free radicals and disease in the body.
Pears help prevent osteoporosis because they contain boron, which researchers believe may help the body to retain calcium. Eating a pear can give you energy since the glucose absorbed in your body absorbs glucose converts into energy.
In order to avoid birth defects, it is important for a pregnant woman to consume enough folic acid, which pears contain 10-20 mcg (about 5% of the RDA) of the natural form of folic acid, folate, so it is recommended that they be included in a healthy prenatal diet.
