After being a father these past four years, I've learned just how far I'd go to protect my kids when it comes to things I let them consume.

Shopping for groceries and giving them certain foods while we're on the go is more in depth than ever before. This is why I love giving my kids fruits and vegetables.

The good thing is, my children both love eating fruits and vegetables like broccoli, carrots, strawberries and apples.

With them loving apples the most, this news of children in Alabama becoming sick due to this apple related food is scary to say the least.
