Most of us try to avoid eating fruits in winters thinking that they may cause digestive issues or simply cough and cold. However, it's not actually what you think. Fruits such as guava and apples are nutritious and reduce risk of falling sick. They help you stay happy and healthy even during the cold weather. 

Take a look at these six fruits that you must include in your diet this winter to escape those 'sick days'.

Pomegranate

Pomegranates have a number of health benefits that you can't ignore. They contain tons of antioxidants that prevent certain cancers. They are a rich source of calcium and iron, and one of the best fruits to increase haemoglobin. If you don't like eating it, drinking a glass of pomegranate juice will also help.

Grapefruit

This seasonal fruit is packed with Vitamin C, which helps to strengthen the immune system and heal your injuries faster. Grapefruit significantly reduces body weight as it is low in calories and high in fibre. 

Orange

Oranges are always easily accessible. It's good to go option for your breakfast and a nutritious snack as well. The fibre content of this fruit you feel full for a longer period of time and also improves digestion, which is great for losing some calories.

Guava

Guava is a seasonal fruit and a rich source of protein. Fully ripe guavas are also low in sugar, making them a really good fruit for weight loss. Interestingly, it also works as a stress-reducing agent and makes your eyesight better.

Apple

We all know that "an apple a day, keeps the doctor away", still we don't consume it regularly. Apples are filled with Vitamin B, which maintains RBC count and antioxidants, which help ward off diseases. You might opt for a warm mug of apple cider on cold winter days.

Bananas

Cold weather often disturbs the digestive system and bananas are here to save the day. Extremely cheap and seemingly always in season, bananas are a great source of potassium, which helps decrease anxiety and stress levels, and B-6, which helps strengthen and build cells as well. You can consume banana in many forms including a pie and a fruit salad.
