They are both typically made as an alcoholic beverage through a fermentation process and should be celebrated frequently. Here's the quick and dirty low down on the big question of the day:

Cider is made from apples, Beer is made from barley.
Is cider healthier?
The true answer here would depend on where your priorities lie in terms of creating a healthy lifestyle. Generally speaking, most would agree that ciders have an edge over beer in a variety of aspects. A great cider, such as Stock & Row's Cold Tea cider has 0g of sugar, is gluten free & vegan, with low carbs. Also made with 100% Ontario Apples. Most beers would have a real hard time competing with that.
Is cider better?
Does a bear shit in the woods?
We appreciate both a quality beer or a cider at the right time, although we usually only choose the beer when thats the only option the in-laws have to offer us...
You know what our vote is!
