> Strawberries are an essential part of the Great British Summer. They're sweet, delicious and good for you.

> Strawberries contain 35 kcal per 100g, and at 91% water they're great for satisfying hunger pangs and quenching your thirst. They're purgative, duiretic and astringent.

> Strawberries are rich in minerals and oligo-elements such as potassium (150mg per 100g), calcium and magnesium (12mg), and are also a good source of iron (0.4mg), copper, zinc and other vital nutrients that are essential for keeping the body's cells working properly.

> Strawberries contain lots of Vitamins C and B and are an excellent source of folic acid, which is essential for the neuromuscular system.
