Let’s get real for a minute

Have you seen it?

The fake news. The fake science.

Because everyone is an “expert”.

Fat is bad. Fat is good.

Are carbs still bad?

Eat regular snacks.

Oh, no wait. It’s better to fast.

What the heck? Which one is it?

We crave some old-school balance.

Where science and common sense meets.

Is dried fruit healthy? Yes, it is.

Why? Because it’s fresh fruit, dried in the sun.

It lasts longer and punches well above its weight.

It has more fibre, more anti-oxidants,

and more micronutrients per gram.

And yes, it has more calories.

But think healthy calories vs “empty calories”.

Dried fruit is a natural sweet treat.

And that is about as real as it’s going to get.

Get real. Eat Dried fruit.
