USApple Commends Abundance Of Apples In White House

President Obama’s promotion of healthy eating is giving apple growers something to smile about. Large bowls of apples placed throughout the White House were prominently featured during the opening segment of “Inside the Obama White House,” which is airing on NBC and MSNBC.


“Any way you slice it, apples are good for your health,” says USApple president and CEO Nancy Foster. “The U.S. apple industry is thrilled to see President Obama’s enthusiastic endorsement of this most American of fruits.”

Foster also shared apple recipes with the president developed by chefs on behalf of the American apple industry. Recipes included tuna apple wraps, apple tortellini salad, apple-green bean-bell pepper salad, and shrimp with Oriental ginger apple barbecue sauce.

The spotlight on apples occurred 10 minutes and 35 seconds into the first segment, which can be viewed online here.
