To celebrate National Pick Strawberries Day- we thought we would take a look at the benefits of doing this activity with your significant other. 

It's makes you spend more time outdoors

It's healthy competition- Anything where you have a little bit of pretend rivalry brings fun into your relationship. You can tease each other and be playful in your pursuit to win.

Your winnings are good for you- At the end you get to eat a punnet of strawberries- which is a lot better for you than popcorn at the cinema or fish and chips by the sea.

You can turn them into an indulgence- If you want to be a little bit naughty with your feast, you could add some ice cream, cream or yoghurt and enjoy a more calorific treat.

It's something different- It makes a change to your usual outings to the cinema, out for a meal or to the theatre, so adds a bit of variety to your dates.

It gets you outside- Rather than staying cooped up indoors watching the TV, it gets you out in the fresh air together. The walking around to find your strawberries won't do either of you any harm either.

You will know where your fruit is coming from- Unlike the supermarket, where you probably have no idea of the source of your food- with this you know it's origin. You can take extra care with what you're putting in your bodies.

Strawberries are good for your sex life- Strawberries are rich in antioxidants which benefit your heart and arteries increasing your circulation- particularly to the areas that need it most during this activity.

Strawberries can help you conceive- They are also rich in vitamin C which is linked to increased sperm counts in men so if you want to start a family- load up on this fruit.
