If you struggle to eat fresh fruits but know the importance they have as part of a well-balanced, healthy diet, you may have an alternative option: nutritional fruit bars.

If you keep reading about the health benefits from nuts and seeds but can’t seem to be able to add them into your diet, you may also have a good alternative: nutritional nut bars.

Do you want to solve two problems at once? Check out nutritional fruit and nut bars! These delicious products can be easily added to your diet at very affordable prices.

Most fruit and nut bars are a great source of fiber as well as a good source of heart-healthy unsaturated fats. Plus, a good number of these types of nutritional bars contain good amounts of vitamin E, an antioxidant that protects your cells. However, not all bars can be considered healthy as many fruit and nut bars may have unhealthy saturated fat and sugar, particularly the conventional brands sold at large retail stores.

The most nutritious prepackaged fruit and nut bars are those that are low in sugar and high in fiber. Bars made with oats and other whole grains are usually better choices because these ingredients are good sources of fiber. For example, nut and raisin bars average about 3 grams of saturated fat, and some fruit and nut bars can have as much as 20 grams of sugar. If you considered fruit and nut bars coated with chocolate, this number can be as high as 30 grams of sugar. So, carefully check the labels for nutritional value and ingredients.

Lastly, if you want to ensure you are eating healthy fruit and nut bars, why not making them yourself? If you can find many different DIY bar recipes online and, surprisingly, making homemade nutritional bars may be easier than you think. Give it a try!
