My toddler loves blueberries! She will eat one of those little grocery store containers in one sitting. I actually have to make special trips to the wholesale club just to buy blueberries, but I don’t mind at all. I am just happy that she loves them so much since blueberries are good for her. One cup of blueberries contains 80 calories and 3.6 grams of fiber. They are also packed with vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese. Blueberries are a great healthy snack option.
My New Year’s resolution this year was to eat more fruit and vegetables. Since I am basically buying blueberries in bulk now, I have been eating more servings of fruit. I am glad we can buy blueberries year round. Our domestic blueberry season only runs from April to September. Once that ends, blueberries are imported from Chile, Peru and Argentina. So we can always find delicious fresh or frozen blueberries in the grocery store.

We love eating blueberries as a snack but I also like to include them in my recipes. I recently used some of our blueberries and made a Blueberry Buckle. It makes a great breakfast coffeecake, brunch, snack or dessert. The Blueberry Buckle is as versatile as blueberries and it makes them even more delicious.
