Natural Delights® NEW Mini Medjools® are the perfect bite-size snack. I’m a big fan of dates in all forms, but the NEW Mini Medjools® put a fun twist on the already great, whole-fruit snack.
Whole Foods & Whole Fruit
As a dietitian, I’m always looking for easy, convenient, and healthy snacks. I prioritize whole foods and simple ingredients, so when these Mini Medjools® came out - I was instantly hooked.
The Mini Medjools® are unique because they use whole fresh fruit, and other simple, whole, and nutritious ingredients. Simply made with fresh dates and a mix of nuts, they are both healthy and convenient.
Fiber, Protein, & More
Dates naturally offer a good source of fiber and even contain a little protein. With the addition of nuts like pecans and pistachios, the new Mini Medjools® offer 3-4 grams of fiber and 1-3 grams of protein in each serving.
Fiber and protein allow the carbohydrates found in dates (or any fruit) to digest more slowly to give us a more sustained source of energy and keep us full for longer. Plus, fiber is key to healthy digestion!
The New Mini Medjools® offer iron and potassium too. Potassium is an important mineral because it helps to regulate hydration and fluid balance and is an electrolyte. Potassium also aids in muscle contraction (including your heartbeat), nerve signaling, and offers heart health benefits, such as reducing blood pressure and reducing the risk of stroke. Iron is another essential mineral that helps transport oxygen throughout tissues in the body.
Kid & Adult Friendly
I love the Cacao Pecan and Coconut Mini Medjools® for my after-dinner sweet tooth. The other flavors are perfect to pair on cheese boards or pack for on-the-go snacks. They also fuel you for long runs and outdoor adventures. Plus, they’re an easy snack to throw in kids' lunch boxes. Kids love them too!
