Pint

A pint of fresh blueberries contains roughly 2 cups, or four 1/2-cup servings, of fruit. Similarly, a half-pint of fresh blueberries contains approximately 1 cup of fruit, or two 1/2-cup servings. Fresh blueberries will keep in your refrigerator from 10 days to two weeks.

While both berries are low-calorie fruits, the strawberries are much lower in calories than the blueberries. One cup of fresh blueberries contains 84 calories and 1 cup of fresh whole strawberries contains 46 calories. You can't go wrong calorie-wise with either berry. If you follow 2,000-calorie diet, one serving of either berry meets less than 5 percent of your daily calorie intake. Plus, the 1-cup serving size makes it a filling source of calories, which can help you manage your weight better. (Source: www.livestrong.com)

Strawberries

Strawberries also contain fewer carbs and sugar than blueberries, but blueberries have more fiber. A 1-cup serving of blueberries contains 21 grams of carbs, 14 grams of sugar and 4 grams of fiber. The same serving of fresh whole strawberries contains 11 grams of carbs, 7 grams of sugar and 3 grams of fiber. While both the blueberries and strawberries are a source of natural sugar, their nutrient content makes them a healthy source of sugar. Additionally, the fiber content in the berries might help reduce your risk of heart disease, obesity and type 2 diabetes.

Neither the blueberry nor the strawberry is a significant source of fat or protein. A 1-cup serving of blueberries contains 1 gram of protein and 0.5 grams of fat, while the same serving of whole strawberries contains 1 gram of protein and 0.4 grams of fat. Protein should provide 10 to 35 percent of your daily calorie intake, and fat 20 to 35 percent. (Source: www.livestrong.com)

Minerals

When it comes to vitamins and minerals, strawberries are a better source of vitamin C and potassium, and the blueberries are a better source of vitamin A. A 1-cup serving of blueberries contains 14 milligrams of vitamin C, 80 International Units of vitamin A and 114 milligrams of potassium, while the same serving of whole strawberries contains 84 milligrams of vitamin C, 17 International Units of vitamin A and 220 milligrams of potassium. Both vitamins A and C are immune -boosting vitamins that help protect you from getting sick. Eating more potassium-rich foods may improve heart health by lowering blood pressure.
