You may not always link Easter with strawberries, but maybe it's not such a bad idea. Brenda Garcia with United Supermarkets joined us this week to talk about strawberries and the health benefits of them.

According to Garcia, now is a great time to have strawberries as they are in season and taste great. There is no reason to be afraid of eating fresh fruit during this time. Just remember to wash your hands when you get home, then wash your fruits and vegetables.

Not only do strawberries taste great, but they are also contain Vitamin C which can really boost your immune system and keep you healthy.

While you can always eat your strawberries as they come (after washing of course) but Brenda gave some great tips on how to use them as toppings and even on ham!

Watch the video above for great tips on strawberries and their benefits. Remember, United Supermarkets will be closed on Easter Sunday so team members can spend the day with family at home.
