The most popular food during the month of Ramadan is none other than dates. Whether you are at a pasar malam or groceries store, you can easily spot them being sold almost everywhere! Dates are an excellent source of fibre, sugar and carbohydrate which will aid the body in maintaining good health. Since fasting lasts for so many hours during the day, they are the perfect snack for an immediate burst of energy!
