How come people don’t talk about the kiwi very much? It is certainly is a cute and tasty little fruit that packs a mighty punch for how small it is. But did you know that a kiwi actually contains more vitamins and minerals than a lot of fruits that are better known as being the ultimate vitamin powerhouse in the fruit world? It’s true, kiwis contain more vitamins and minerals than in bananas and oranges.
