Try it you'll fall in love, we sure did! The kids and adults of the house all ask for this and it is a simple way to get proper nutrition every morning. I was surprised to find out that canned peaches can be so delicious so I looked into them a little more to find out about the process and nutrients in them.
When buying the peaches, make sure they say Made in USA, as some canned peaches are not the same and not as nutritious. Del Monte and some of the house brands are California Cling Peaches! The canning process that California Cling Peaches uses has been proven to increase key nutrients. According to a study by the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University, canned peaches are higher in antioxidants and Vitamin A and are nearly four times higher in Vitamin C and 10 times higher in folate than fresh peaches.
