Dried fruit is a fantastic choice if you’re looking for a natural, tasty and healthy snack that isn’t covered in additives, sugars and trans-fats.
The problem with most sweets and snacks these days is that they’re incredibly unnatural and just packed with unhealthy chemicals and don’t offer you any useful nutrients in return. These are what are known as ‘empty calories’, meaning that they are high in calories and low in anything good for you.
Dried fruits however are just as sweet as many candies but while offering you all the vitamins and minerals of regular fruit. They can even be used as a way to trick kids into eating their five a day!
Made in Nature make a great brand of dried fruits, so let’s take a look at them…

These are an absolutely delicious selection of fruits and offer a very good selection of different fruits.

Love this mix. So happy to find it through Amazon, I purchased this from Costco, but they discontinued it pretty quickly. I love the sweet, but not too sweet and the mix of a little crunch with the seeds. I am allergic to most nuts, so the seeds are a nice change from the heavy nutted trail mix. Also love this is low in fat. It is a great snack, I carry it my car and take handfuls of this all day long.
At the same time, these are certified USDA organic, which means you can rest assured that they haven’t been anywhere near pesticides or other unwanted chemicals that could cause unwanted health effects.

On the downside, these dried fruits are somewhat pricey. This is to be expected with organic fruits however, that do require a little more effort and expense to grow. At the end of the day, you have to ask yourself how much your health is worth to you!
