Saving 100 Calories Never Tasted This Good

A Dean dietitian's new favorite summer snack

Summer just isn’t summer without an occasional cool treat. But be careful — there are lots of not-so-healthy choices out there.

Here’s a good choice for you and your kids: Edy’s Antioxidant Fruit Bars. With no artificial ingredients, they’ll satisfy the sweet teeth in your life and provide a wonderful indulgence on a summer day. Nutritionist Keri Glassman thinks they’re pretty good, too. (Here’s her in-depth review.)

Compared to a traditional ice cream bar, you’ll save 100 calories and almost a third of your recommended daily allowance of saturated fat. Both are high in sugar (although the fruit bars contain natural fruit-based sugars) so be careful. Bottom line: Just read the labels and you’ll see which calories are worth it and which ones aren’t.

Enjoy!
