Zespri 14-Day Challenge: It's A Wrap! (+ Giveaway)

Sponsored Review

Given the fact that I've never been a lover of fruits, it feels really surreal that I've completed a 14-day Challenge centred around this furry fruit called kiwifruit. I'm actually impressed with myself.

It's been a really fun journey so far. The benefits are many, and I'm glad I took on the challenge:

1. My hubby & I became healthier.
2. My kids became healthier (Bowel movements improved).
3. Kiwifruit became our most talked-about fruit at home.
"Mummy, can I have another kiwifruit, please?"
4. Talking about the nutritional value of fruits so much has increased my consciousness to stay healthy.
5. Many of my friends meet me and the first thing they ask is, "How's your Zespri challenge going?"
6. Different friends messaged me after they came back from the supermarket and bought a box of Zespri kiwifruits because they saw them in on the shelves and thought of me.
*super sweet friends I have*
7. A friend whatsapped me a photograph of her daughter eating Zespri kiwifruits with the message, "We were inspired by you!"
8. My brain's being used more creatively now because I have to think of ways to cook & eat my kiwifruits.
9. I learnt so much about the uses of kiwifruits (meat tenderizer) and how much nutrition they have.
10. My MIL's impressed with me because I'm feeding the kids fruits like finally?!! (LOL!)

Thank you to all of you who have been faithfully followed me on this 14-Day Challenge. My greatest wish is that you have been inspired to live healthier and started including kiwifruits into your daily diet. Keeping our bodies healthy can also make us happy people! :)
