Dear Rudi
Dried mixed fruit already has an energy content of 1383 kJ per 100g, and mebos can contain about 40% added sugar, so it is a high energy food that should be eaten in small quantities of approx. 30g per day. Dried fruit is relatively high in dietary fibre, iron, vitamin A (if the product contains apricots) and potassium, and promotes regularity.
Enjoy
