Fruit Leather or Granola Bar?

Fruit Leather.

One hundred percent natural fruit leather has about 45 calories and a short ingredient list--usually fruits and juice--making it the obvious choice. Even fruit-leather brands that add corn syrup are significantly lower in fat and calories than granola bars.

Keep in mind: "Neither is a great choice when it comes to dental health," says Zied. "They're very sticky and gooey." That means bits get lodged in the teeth and usually need a good brushing to become unstuck. At the very least, have kids drink a glass of water to wash away some of the cavity-causing remnants.
