Let's be honest, giving nutritionally balanced snacks that are satisfying and filling can be tough. With so many high sugar and salt filled foods on the market, it's hard to navigate what's actually good and what's crap. Trust me, just because it says "all natural," "organic" or has bunny rabbits and Elmo all over it doesn't mean that it's going to be good for your little one.
That's one of the reasons I love Lara Bars. If I had my way, everyone would make their own protein bars, but sometimes that's not possible. There are tons of bar companies on the market, but most of them are full of sugar and words that I can't even pronounce.
Lara bars come in delicious flavors like lemon, apple and cherry pie and my favorite, banana bread. The base ingredients are nuts and dates and most of them only have 3-4 ingredients. You can now buy them at almost every grocery and health food store. When you're rushing in the morning or want to keep something healthy for you or your child in your bag, this is a perfect treat.
