Taqiyuddin Al Hushni, author of the book narrates Akhyar Kifayatul Ar Rauyani opinion which states thus:

"Recommended breaking the fast with dates or if not then with water, based on the hadith. because the sweet things that strengthens the body and the water it cleanses the body. Ar Rauyani said: 'if there are no dates then with a sweet tooth. because fasting weakens the outlook and strengthen the palm, and sweet things that convey the same date ' "(Kifayatul Akhyar, 200)."

Quoted from
It is always advisable to break the fast by eating or drinking something sweet. Why should they and why?
As quoted from automatically while fasting the body's metabolism will slow down. Nutrition stored at dawn many disappear after a day of activity. Because it does not get nutrition for 14 hours, the stored energy is reduced, too. Therefore intake of sweet foods or drinks is very important during fasting.
Sweet foods or drinks are a source of calories easily processed by the body quickly. So sweet foods play a role in restoring energy and stamina that has gone very quickly as well. Besides the sweet taste can improve blood sugar levels in the body. Feeling weak during fasting usually occurs due to lower sugar levels in the body. Increased levels of this sugar then help restore the body's metabolic functions returned to normal.
With the statement, after eating dates or if there are no dates, es campur was suitable for Iftar.
