Why should you eat one of these?
If you are pregnant, prunes will help boost your iron stores which aids in your babies brain development and provides your child with their iron for the 1st 6 months of life. Also if you are into working out then the iron in prunes can help enhance the flow of oxygen to your muscles making you an energy boss!
If you are constipated lately then pop one of these in your belly and let the high concentration of fibre in prunes do it’s job by moving water through your system and clearing out the pipes. The fibre will also keep you feeling fuller for longer than the muesli bar!
Watching your sugar intake? Prunes used to make these balls have half the amount of sugar than dates do, which are often used in raw ball recipes.
