Try this: Medjool dates

If you haven’t tried Medjool dates, you’re in for a surprise as these are quite different from their dried cousins. These sweet, juicy dates are a delicious treat.

Two Medjool dates have around 560kJ, so don’t go overboard on them. Those two dates will, however, provide 4.6g fibre and 330mg potassium — more than you can say for your average confectionery treat! As an alternative, try freezing them for a chewy caramel-like treat.

As they tend to stick to teeth they’re probably best to have before, rather than after, a meal (see The HFG guide to oral hygiene for more information).
