Looking for a convenient way to eat five or more fruits and vegetable servings a day? Keep dried fruit on hand for a quick and healthy snack. Our registered dietitian recommends dried figs, apricots, raisins, plums, blueberries, cranberries or dates. Toss some on your cereal, salad or yogurt, accent a rice dish or enjoy just as they are.
Dried fruit contains more nutrients and calories than an equal amount of whole fruit. A quarter cup or palmful counts as a serving. No washing, peeling or slicing required!
