Many of you have heard me say that when that candy bar in your desk drawer is calling your name at snack time…well…there’s a better choice. For many of us, that choice is dried fruit.
But is it so great a choice in the end?
As snacks go, it can be dodgy, to be honest. While dried fruits are concentrated sources of minerals like iron, copper, potassium, beta carotene and fiber, they are also rich sources of sugar…and calories.
