As we were leaving my girlfriends house for the hour drive home. She gave all my kids a snack. She has done this for years. It's like when we say our good-byes, my kids at looking to her for their treat bag. She always has the latest and greatest snacks. I swear that she finds about 75% of the new foods that we eat. I am not sure how she finds the best snacks, but she does.
So naturally, I take a bite to see what all the goodness is about. Yumm-O. And the very best thing: 70-120 calories a piece. I mean really, when looking for a snack, it's nice to keep it around 100 calories. Sorry for the numbers, but after 30 and kids, things can go south really quickly.
Clif Bar is "low fat, made with whole oats, and contains 12 essential vitamins and minerals kids need every day. What you won't find is all the junk!” They are low in sugars and low in fat. I have never been a health nut, my family does not do many organic things. We try and eat healthy, but we are a meat and potatoes kind of family, oh and we LOVE our bread.
This Clif Bar is marketed towards kids. There is the Z Bar and the Twisted Fruit. We all have our favorites from both products. I must admit I was hesitant to give my 4 and 6 year old an energy bar, but when I really looked at the ingredients between the Clif Z Bar and the Quaker Granola Bar, it seems like a better choice.
I am addicted to the Twisted Fruit. I eat at least one every day. Does not matter the flavor, it's just plain good. Wow, who knew I could talk about kids food for so long. If you get chance you should seriously try these.
