I wanted to take a minute to share this new snack I found for my kids (and me too). My girls are super skinny and I am always trying to find ways to get more protein and vitamins into their diet. Recently, I began buying the Special K protein bars to put in their backpacks for snack time. With 4 grams of protein, I felt this was a good step up from the Cascadian granola bars I purchased previously.
Then something wonderful happened, through Bzzagent.com, I got to try the new Fiber One Protein bars. First of all, they are way larger than the Special K kind. Perfect for the afternoon munchies that hit my kids.
Then you just have to take a look at the nutritional content to believe the rest. This is a picture of the nutritional content from the two bars that are generally the same flavor (peanut and chocolate). Check out the difference!
Protein- SK 4g, FO 10g
Fiber- SK 4g, FO 9g
Calcium- SK 2%, FO 20%
Vitamin C- SK 0%, FO 20%
Sugar- SK 7g, FO 6g
And there is even more. Fiber One is higher in every single vitamin and mineral. The best part is, my family LOVES them. The taste is wonderful. I can't wait to try the other varieties. I know that we have found a new staple in our house.
