Snack Break With Store-bought Snack Bars

I would love to send my kids to school everyday with a healthy, homemade snack. But reality is, there are not enough hours in the day to make everything from scratch. Here are three of our favorite grab-and-go bars when we need a little help from our friends…

Kashi’s Chocolate Soft Baked Squares – These are one of Aleyah’s new favorites. She gets a kick out of the fact that sweet potatoes and black beans are baked right in with the chocolate! They also come in almond flavor.

Nature’s Path Chococonut Granola Bars – We also like the NP’s Pumpkin-N-Spice Granola Bars, but the combo of chocolate and coconut in the Chococonut is preferred by our family. These are a little more on the dessert , but they are a nice organic and wheat-free treat on the occasion we need them.

Clif Kid ZBarThese kid-sized bars create shrills of excitement when I place a box into the grocery cart. The oat-based bars come in a variety of flavors including S’mores, Iced Oatmeal, and Peanut Butter to name a few.
