From the New York Times:
And in keeping with the theme of healthy eating inside the White House that Mrs. Obama has promoted, the children were also given a dried fruit mix of cherries, apricots, pears, apples and papayas.
I bet the kids were thrilled to get dried papayas.
Dried Fruit is terrible for the teeth.
Papayas contain more beta-carotene than carrots, and more vitamin C than kiwi fruit. Papaya aids digestion thanks to its powerful papain enzyme. Papaya is a very alkaline fruit, and this is one reason that it is often useful in soothing an upset stomach. Dried papaya is especially effective in ridding the digestive tract of constipation.
