Bananas are known for their high potassium, a mineral that is important for the health of your bones, kidneys, nerves and muscles.
They also contain vitamin B6, fibre & vitamin A making them a nice addition to your breakfast. And because bananas are grown in tropical locations, they are considered to be in season all year round.
