Health Tip: Enjoying Dried Fruit
Avoid products with added sugar
(HealthDay News) -- Dried fruit is a versatile, tasty and budget-friendly way to include fruit in your daily diet.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests how to choose dried fruit:
- Pay attention to serving size. Dried fruit is nutrient-rich, but serving sizes typically are small.
- Make sure the product does not contain added sugar.
- If you have a sulfites allergy, read the product label to make sure the fruit doesn't contain any.
- Eat a handful of dried fruit as a snack. Or sprinkle on a salad, cereal, pancakes or include with a favorite bread recipe.
