United Supermarkets is "Fresh on Strawberries" this week. That means it's a great time of year to purchase and eat strawberries. Brenda Duby with United Supermarkets stopped by the studio today to discuss the benefits of eating strawberries.

According to to Duby, not only do the Strawberries taste great, they have great nutritional benefits. For example, strawberries are a great source of Vitamin C, fiber, and folic acid.

Brenda Duby also says that strawberries can help whiten your teeth, but of course it's not substitute for brushing.

Duby also gave some great tips on how to use strawberries with your favorite foods. Duby suggested using strawberries in salads and mix with jalapenos. Duby also suggested cutting up the strawberries and pairing them with chicken or grilled pork chops.

Looking for something sweet? Purchase some dark chocolate hummus and dip a strawberry in that.
