Actually there is less than one gram of fat and around 100 calories in the average banana so they’re actually very low in fat. Furthermore bananas are packed with potassium, come in their own packaging, are clean and very handy as a snack!
Actually by the time fresh fruit and vegetables are eaten, their frozen or canned cousins are usually at least as vitamin-rich as they are. For example, with shipping and storage fresh fruit can often sit around losing vitamins for as long as two weeks before it even hits the supermarket. It can then languish in the fridge for another week, all the time losing more vitamins. Then, when it’s finally boiled, even more vitamins are allowed to leach out into the cooking water. In these cases fresh produce may not have the same nutritional value as canned or frozen fruit and vegetables, which are often picked and frozen at the peak of freshness. If you want your fresh fruit and vegetables packed full of vitamins it’s time to plant that vegetable patch you’ve always dreamed of.
At some point in history, people may have believed that stuffing your face while you had a cold would get rid of it, but modern doctors say that's a lot of hooey. The truth is that staying hydrated is the most important thing to do because your immune system uses a lot of fluids to fight off a virus when you’re ill so, in both cases the mantra is to eat and drink, then drink some more. If you have a fever that's higher than 38 C for more than 48 hours, then it's not about whether to eat, it's about consulting a doctor to find out what's causing the fever. If having something soothing, such as a soup or broth, will comfort you, then go ahead. It may make you feel better but it’s not going to cure you.
