Dietitian Tip

Figs are a sweet fruit with soft flesh and tiny edible seeds. They are a good source of iron, calcium and phosphorus. You can eat figs raw, with or without their peel, or use them in baked goods.


  • 2 large red apples, cored and diced
  • 6 dried figs, chopped
  • 2 ribs of celery, diced
  • 1/2 cup fat-free lemon yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds
  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated


In a small bowl, combine apples, figs and celery. Add yogurt and mix thoroughly. Top with almonds and grated carrots. Serve.
