My son is crazy for fruit!  He has literally been eating us out of house and home with his love of fruit.  This is a good thing but all he wants to eat now is fruit.  I literally have to get him to eat a few bites of other foods and then use fruit as his "dessert."   I buy a ton of fruit but by the end of the week I start to run out or it begins to go bad since it's fresh.  I have a few cans of fruit in 100% fruit juice that I use as backup towards the end of the week.  But, the big question is canned/frozen or fresh?  Obviously my answer is going to be fresh but if you run into problems such as mine it's better to get your fruit in for the day than none at all.  What should you watch for?  Jenny Craig recommends making sure frozen fruits don't have added sugar and canned is packed in water or pure fruit juice.  Fruit cups are an excellent way to really make sure you're getting the correct portion size.  I totally understand that sometimes when you're on the "go" you need something quick and easy.  Fruit cups are usually simple and no added sugar is what you should be looking for.  Add your own cinnamon if you like cinnamon applesauce.
