I don't eat fast food and go to the gym. I try to eat healthily & sensibly.

I have noticed that I sometimes feel hungry/have an energy dip mid-afternoon.

I always have some granola bars in a desk drawer & will occasionally have one of those.

Should I eat a piece of fruit then, and, if so, whic?

    As you can see, I am new here. Could the downvoters please tell me why and I will try to improve the question? Thanks – Mawg says reinstate Monica Jan 5 '16 at 15:14

    Not my downvote, but the answer depends on what else you're eating, what shopping/storage habits you have, what's available in your area, and what time of year it is. Also, the trendy answers vary continuously as different producers find excuses to brand their own produce as superfoods, so it's hard to give a useful answer. On the other hand, banana is a popular staple in this situation. – 1-- Jan 5 '16 at 23:12

    Welcome to Health SE. I'm afraid that this question is too broad, as there are so many arguments that could be made for so many different fruits. I'm going have to put this on-hold, but if you make it less broad, you can flag for reopening. Thanks :) – michaelpri Jan 5 '16 at 23:25

Why stick to only one type of fruit? One day you have an apple and a guava the next. After all, each fruit has it's own set of benefits and they are all good for your health. No fruit is considered bad to consume right? And if you are only looking to fill up your energy meter and to satiate your mid-afternoon cravings, bananas are an excellent choice as they are high in calories and are very effective in eliminating hunger.
