One kiwifruit has more vitamin C than you need for a whole day. Vitamin C is essential for immune system function, normal wound healing, and for maintaining healthy connective tissue. 

Kiwifruits are also rich in several minerals, including magnesium, zinc and potassium. Magnesium and zinc are needed for 100's of biochemical reactions to take place in your body, and potassium works with potassium and chloride to keep your body fluids balanced. 

Eating kiwifruit is also a good way to help take care of your heart and digestive system -- each fruit has 2 grams of fiber.

They're also good for your waistline -- one kiwifruit has only 42 calories. 

Finally, kiwifruits are a good source of folate -- a B vitamin needed to prevent a birth defect called spina bifida. They're a good source of vitamin E as well. Vitamin E is an important antioxidant that helps protect the cells in your boy from free radical damage due to pollution and other exposures.
