What are the benefits of eating dates?

Dates are a great food to include in your kids day. Not only are the packed with fiber (almost a full gram of fiber per date) they are portable and delicious.  This makes them easy to take an eat on the go. They are higher in calories than other fruit which is great for picky eaters. That’s what makes these bars an even better snack, kids can eat dates with healthy dry fruits all day long.

Because dates are so sweet, dates provide the perfect natural alternative to added sugars in any date recipe. In fact, dates are such a great source of natural sugar, they have been processed to make natural sweeteners such as date juice, date sugar, dehydrated dates, date paste, ground dates, and even diced dates that you can add to recipes you want to sweeten up naturally.

I remember my mom used to soak almonds and give it to us all siblings in morning time when we were kids. Soaked almond are really cool for our body, they never gives heat to it. Otherwise almonds are so heated snacks, while having or eating them as raw. I used to soak almonds at night, for me and for my kiddo and husband and next day morning peel the almonds and give them as a snack in breakfast or with milk.

Can I eat dates every day?

You can! One serving of dates is 5-6 dates, which is really easy to do when you blend them in a mixer and make delicious no bake date bars like this!

This superfood energy bar recipe is 100% kids friendly and the perfect wholesome snack recipe. Easy, nutritious and much less expensive than the store-bought bars.

You can use cashews or apricot also to make such nut bars. Mix and match dry fruits as per availability. There is no need to add any liquid ingredients. I think a high power blender or food processor could be used to make these, but I haven’t tried it myself. I have tried it normal mixer grinder.
