SNACK HEALTHY WITH FRUITS AND NUTS
To stay healthy, it's suggested you eat two to four servings of fruit daily and up to five servings of nuts weekly. Meeting that goal is never a problem with the selection of fruit and nut goodies from The Vermont Country Store. Here, you’ll find delicious jars of preserved fruits combined with tasty spices, as well as dried fruit assortments perfect for serving up at parties, thanks to the bamboo trays they come presented on.
As for nuts, we have plenty to choose from, too. There are pistachios, peanuts, pecans and more. Try our Vermont maple mixed nuts, a savory blend of cashews, almonds, hazelnuts, and pecans, sweetened with Vermont maple syrup. We also have butter toffee peanuts and cashews for a sweet treat with health benefits, too. So dig into our selection to get your daily fill of fruits and nuts.
Is Dried Fruit as Healthy As Fresh Fruit?
The short answer: yes! Dried fruit has plenty of health benefits when eaten as a part of a balanced diet. Dried fruit typically contains as many nutrients as its fresh counterpart, but in a more condensed form. Because of this, natural-occurring sugars condense too, so dried fruits appear higher in sugar.
The sugar content and temptation to eat more in one sitting is where myths about dried fruits being unhealthy are derived. As long as you are mindful of portions when consuming dried fruit, it is as healthy as fresh fruit and even has some different added benefits. Many are a great source of potassium and fiber.
Delight in Fruit-Filled Baked Goods
For a delicious sweet treat with fruit, give our award-winning peach cobbler mix a try. This Southern-style cobbler can be made with fresh or canned peaches, so you can whip it up during any season.
