Dried apricots are an excellent source of dietary fiber, potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium, Vitamin E and antioxidants. Dried apricots have many health benefits such as prevent inflammation, improve skin, help with digesting and balance blood pressure to name a few. Dried apricots are also known to improve vision.
Our family loves having a snack of dried apricots as it is easy to carry around. I personally eat them when I have a sweet craving. I include them in nut butter ball snack recipes, oatmeal, desserts, etc. We have also had dried apricots with probiotics for a boost in nutrition. I often give dried apricots to my kids in the car on the way to the swimming lessons, as they are a great boost of energy.
