Fruit of the Month: Dried Fruit

Every month the CDC highlights a fruit and vegetable that should be in a healthy diet.  January's fruit of the month is dried fruit. Drying fruit preserves many of the nutrients and prolongs the life of the fruit, but it is important to remember that one serving of dried fruit is half the size of the same fresh fruit.

Try some dried fruit as a healthy lunchtime treat, especially in the winter months when access to fresh fruit is sometimes difficult.  For more on the fruit of the month visit: http://www.fruitsandveggiesmatter.gov/month/.  From there you can find out nutrition information, drying methods, and new recipes.
