Picking the Right Sweetness: Fruit Edition


We can never deny how we enjoy eating sweet food. From various desserts to fruit choices, name it. However, sugar can either be good or bad for our health. For seniors dealing with chronic illness, even if none, their sugar intake must be well-monitored. Diabetes does not only impact the health of the senior- but it also attacks children. Hence, it is detrimental to offer them sugary food anytime.

As a team of caregivers in Washington parish, we understand that there are times the elderly would demand something sweet. Candy, chocolate, cake, and other confections are not the answer- fruits are. Fruits are the safest to the saccharine our seniors are craving. However, we must note that there are still fruits with a high sugar intake.

As a provider of homemaker services in Washington Parish, we distinguish which fruit has the most and less sugar.

Fruits with most sugar:

  • Mangoes
  • Grapes and Cherries
  • Banana
  • Pear
  • Watermelon

Fruits with less sugar are:

  • Strawberries and Raspberries
  • Papayas
  • Cantaloupe
  • Avocado
  • Guava

These fruits are seasonal. Thus, whatever is available is fine. Just make sure to serve them in moderation. Complete Choice Personal Care assures to serve the healthiest dishes and desserts.
