Whether you are a big planner, resolution-maker, or just like to keep it simple, putting a few health goals in place is pretty common every January.

Bone health is one that gets put on the back burner until we start having achy hips… but did you know that we start losing bone mass after 30 years? Investing time and energy into exercising as well as eating foods that are supportive of bone health is your best bet.
Something you probably didn’t know is that prunes are high in potassium – recent research shows that eating just 5-6 California prunes a day supports bone health. Naturally sweet and high in dietary fibre, prunes support heart and digestive health, and because they have a low glycemic index, help to manage blood sugar levels.
