Observed in the U.S. every October, National Apple Month shines a spotlight on apples and apple products. The month-long observance aims to increase sales of the well-loved fruit and enhance people’s awareness of the importance and benefits of apples. Apple-related industries often sponsor contests and promotions during October.
Every American is familiar with the old Welsh proverb, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Indeed, apples offer many health benefits. They are a critical source of dietary fiber and flavonoids. They also contain phytonutrients and antioxidants that are helpful in reducing the risk of hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, and many forms of cancer.
For National Apple Month, try stocking your kitchen with different varieties of apples for the family. You can even have a taste test to see which types of apples you like best. Challenge every member of the family to eat an apple a day in October. You can also get your home into the spirit by decorating your kitchen with appliance covers. Appliance Art offers many refrigerator covers and dishwasher covers with apple designs, including the following:
