CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Whitney Hemmer shares great snacks for the upcoming school year in this Fareway Cooking Segment.

Prepared bars for kids

Healthy Bars for kids should have:

  • Less than 7 g added sugar
    • Total sugar in bars can vary a lot, therefore, paying attention to the added sugar is important.
  • 2 g fiber
  • Oats, fruit, nuts, seeds
  • 2 g protein

If a bar is lacking in one area, pair it with additional protein, such as eggs, nuts or cheese. You can also pair a bar with fiber.

Bars are excellent snacks because they keep kids full.

Kind Minis have 2 flavors in one.

Made Good Bars are free of common allergens.
