You Asked: Is Dried Fruit Good or Bad?

You're asking and I'm answering.

Dear Fit,
I've been reading the comments on your site a lot and everyone is talking about how bad dried fruit is for you, but I love dried fruit and snack on it all the time. What gives?"
—Confused Carly

I love this question because, honey, you're definitely not the only one wondering this. To see my response

.

Dried fruit is great if it is just that, dried fruit. Many store-bought dried fruits contain added sugar and trans fat. The key is to read the label. If the label lists anything other than the fruit, such as sucrose and/or partially-hydrogenated oil then skip it. Also, if you're watching your calories then be careful as dried fruit is higher in calories than its fresh counterpart. The plus side of that is that while dried fruits are high in calories, they're also high in other nutrients that you want in your diet. This is my rule or thumb: Eating a whole bag of dried apricots as an afternoon snack, not so good. Tossing a few in plain yogurt in the morning, good.
