Berries are very healthy and packed with nutrients, fiber and antioxidants. Most varieties can be purchased fresh, frozen or dried.

Although all types are relatively healthy, the dried varieties are a much more concentrated source of calories and sugar, since all the water has been removed.

A 3.5-ounce (100-gram) serving of fresh or frozen berries contains 32–35 calories, while 3.5 ounces of dried strawberries contain a whopping 396 calories (94, 95).

The dried varieties are also often covered with sugar, further increasing the sugar content. By opting for the fresh varieties, you will get a much juicier snack that’s lower in sugar and a lot lower in calories.
