With two teenagers, I cannot tell you how many times a day I hear “What can I have for a snack?” My 14 year old alone eats enough for two people and still manages to be thin. I try very hard to be aware of what snack foods I bring into the house. Yes, we splurge occasionally, but for the most part I make sure we have healthy food in the house for the kids to snack on. If they are healthy and gluten free, that’s an even better choice since my daughter is gluten intolerant.
Probar Fruition gluten free bars
We’re very familiar with ProBars gluten free bars. I love their original and Halo bars for snacks because they are not only good for you but they taste good. ProBar has a new gluten free bar out that I haven’t seen yet in our grocery stores called Fruition. Fruition is a fruit based superfood snack bar that is gluten free. They contain dates, gluten-free raw oats, chia seeds and cashews and are available in six real fruit flavors. Each Fruition bar contains and entire serving of fruit. This is a great way to get your kids to eat healthier. These gluten free bars are available in peach, blueberry, strawberry, lemon, chocolate orange, cherry, and cran-raspberry. The bars have 4 grams of fiber and only 2 grams of fat! Each bar has between 160 and 170 calories which is totally doable for a snack. I love that they are certified organic as well!
I try a lot of healthy snacks because I tend to be rather picky. I’ve noticed that some snack bars that are labelled as high fiber and healthy are very dry which is a total turn off for me. Like the other types of ProBars I’ve tried in the past, the Fruition are actually very moist and pleasantly chewy. The fruit flavors really come through wonderfully and the chia seeds give them a great texture. After trying each of the flavors, I think that the peach is my favorite although it was hard to choose and the strawberry came in a very close second.
I hope to find this variety of ProBar gluten free bars in my store soon. They do have a store locator on their site that you can use or they can be purchased online.
