If food will be consumed on these days, concentration can break due to laziness at the time of worship. Pooja has to be done sitting in one place and in such a situation, if you eat food, sitting will not digest food, indigestion can occur. Concentration should remain in worship and laziness is removed, hence fruits are especially consumed in Navratri.
