Tennis players need even more because of the training diet requiring more carbohydrate based fuels. Most standard serves of fruit equal 20g of carbohydrates. Learn practical ways to work these choices into your daily menu. Here are some tips for eating more fruit!

Fruit

• Choose fruit juices as a beverage with meals and snacks
• Snack on 100% dried fruit or fruit leathers
• Have a fruit smoothie
• Add berries or cut-up fruit to breakfast cereal and oatmeal
