Sunsweet Ones {GIVEAWAY ~ FIVE WINNERS}



Prunes aren't something that we buy on a regular basis at our house so we were thrilled when we were given the opportunity to review Sunsweet Ones Prunes! Ella LOVES any kind of fruit so I was excited to introduce a new fruit to her. She was a little skeptical at first but after she took the first bite she quickly found out that enjoys Prunes just as much as any other fruit!

Prunes are a Super Fruits that are kid-friendly and don’t cost a fortune! What surprises most people is that some of the most nutritionally dense foods are ones they might already have in their cupboard or fruit bowl, such as prunes. Prunes, or dried plums as they are also known, are truly a SUPER fruit.

I love that the Sunsweet Ones come individually wrapped so they are easy to throw in my purse or a lunch box! Be sure to check out more great information at http://www.pop-a-prune.com/.

Sunsweet also partnered with Cheryl Forberg, registered dietitian and nutritionist for “The Biggest Loser” to create this online video on Super Fruit:





What makes a Prune SUPER:

Antioxidant rich. Prunes have a high antioxidant (ORAC) score. Antioxidants help to slow the oxidative damage to our bodies, and many researchers believe that antioxidants slow the aging process.

Potassium punch. Move over bananas! Ounce for ounce, prunes have more potassium than bananas. Studies have shown potassium helps prevent hypertension and stroke.

Bone health. A handful of nutrient-rich prunes a day may help bone metabolism and the reversal of bone loss for people with osteoporosis. They may also lead to improved bone formation.
Low Glycemic Index (GI). Prunes are a low GI food, and therefore help to contribute to a low Glycemic Load diet and can aid in preventing and managing conditions including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer and obesity.


Heart health. Prunes can help play a role in preventing heart disease and chronic diseases because they’re rich in antioxidants, which slow the chemical process of oxidation and protect key cell components from damage.


Prebiotic power. Prunes naturally contain prebiotics, which stimulate the growth of healthy bacteria in the large intestine. This helps dietary fiber perform well and promotes immune system and digestive health.

Weight loss. Prunes are a good source of fiber, and this can help keep hunger pangs at bay. As a food component, fiber isn’t absorbed, so it doesn’t contribute calories that’s why high-fiber foods are included in weight loss diets. Plus, four prunes have just 100 calories!
