YUBA CITY, Calif., Dec. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The holidays are a busy time for everyone, so it's easy to get sidetracked from a healthy routine. Schedules are packed and can derail daily fitness routines and eating regimens. Cookies, cakes and pies are the typical treats associated with the holidays, but you can celebrate the sweetness of the season with healthier options from Sunsweet, the world's largest handler of dried fruits including prunes.

Sunsweet Ones Individually Wrapped Prunes are a delicious and healthy snack that you can take along in your purse or gym bag to keep you energized and satisfied during holiday errands and in between meals, in addition to enjoying as a pre and post workout snack. One serving of 4 to 5 prunes is:

  • Fat free
  • A good source of fiber
  • Only 100 calories
  • A good source of fiber, potassium, Vitamin C and Vitamin K

If you are craving something indulgent, Sunsweet PlumSweets pair the fruity goodness of Sunsweet Amaz!n Diced Prunes with creamy Greek yogurt or rich, dark chocolate. Prunes are a nutrition powerhouse, and research shows that eating 5 to 6 prunes a day can help maintain bone mineral density in women.
