HEALTHY SNACKS

 

Feeling confined to the same ol' lunchbox snacks for kids? Break out - and try new great tasting, whole grain, organic energy bars made just for kids. You'll escape sugary, preservative-laden options and commit fewer eco-felonies.

 

  • These bars come in kid sizes - portions geared to smaller appetites - and are the right-size boost (in terms of calories) for that lap around the yard.
  • Our picks contain healthy ingredients and avoid the zero-nutrition refined sugars and flours used in conventional bars - not-so-nutritious stuff that belongs in the lockup.
  • You'll be supporting eco-brands, since organic bars are made with no pesticides. Plus Clif and Nature's Path donate 1% of sales to conservation orgs.
  • We and our kid testers tried every flavor for you. The verdict: great taste.

 

Get these at national chains like Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, and online.
  • Can Do Kid Bars - gluten-free protein bars made with soy and peanuts; in three flavors - we're stocking up on Cookies & Cream; two 85-calorie bars per package so you can save one for after the soccer game ($26/15 packs).
  • Clif Kid Organic ZBar - whole oat bar with 30% of kids' recommended daily calcium; Biter faves: Honey Graham and Chocolate Brownie ($14/18 bars).
  • JamFrakas - organic, crispy, brown rice bar with dried fruit, nuts, and honey from LaraBar; it had us at Banana Chocolate with cashews ($13/18 bars).
  • Organic Food Bar Kids - rich-tasting, moist, and not-too-sweet vegan bar with whole grains; in fruit and chocolate flavors ($11/10 bars).
  • Nature's Path EnviroKidz Organic Crispy Rice Bar - low-sodium, gluten- and nut-free bar; go for chocolate ($4/6 bars).
