What is so great about bananas? People seem to either love them or hate them, I for one love them! You’ll always find me including a banana in my breakfast meal somehow! So apart from how delicious they are, find out about banana nutrition and how to make the most of them.

Bananas provide Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Potassium, Folate, Niacin and Riboflavin. They have a low GI rating and are a good source of fibre. This means they take longer to break down. They also don’t raise your blood sugar levels too much, therefore, keeping your fuller for longer and giving you sustained energy! Fibre is also incredibly important for your bowel health and bananas will definitely help you to meet your daily requirements.

They’re a great snack as you can pop one in your bag and not have to worry about keeping it refrigerated. You can use them to make smoothies, banana muffins or cake, as a toast topper, freeze them into bite-size pieces for a hot summers day plus plenty of other ideas!

For those gym junkies and keen runners out there, Bananas are also a great pre-workout snack providing you with some quality carbohydrates to fuel you for your session.
