Most dried fruits are not good because they contain preservatives, and since the water content has been removed out of them, they are very very sweet. People also tend to eat dried fruits freely too, thinking they're healthy, and it's so ridiculously easy to eat an entire pouch of yummy dried apricots for me. Prunes are sweet too, but they contain a compound that gives a laxative effect, so it helps with constipation.
