In September the British public will have a chance to pick their way through an exciting array of fruits in autumn.
These include strawberries, peaches, nectarines, blueberries, plums, raspberries and pears.
The fruits are a big part of the autumn foodie calendar and are often eaten in large quantities, but do not have the nutritional value of the other types of fruits.
The berries of autumn are very important for the health of the human body and should be consumed in a balanced manner.
Some fruits contain antioxidants, such as lycopene, that have been shown to help fight cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Many fruits have vitamin C, which is an antioxidant that helps protect the body from free radicals, which can damage cells.
Other fruits have fibre, which helps absorb water from the air and help digest foods.
Some varieties of the green fruit are rich in vitamins C and E, which are important for healthy cells.
It is important to remember that the majority of these nutrients are found in the seeds.
This means that the berries you pick in autumn will not provide you with a complete and nutritious meal.
You will still need to eat a balanced diet in order to achieve a healthy weight.
