For Moms, Moms-to-be, and Toddlers+
As a parent, it is often a struggle to find treats that are not only healthy, but that your kids will actually enjoy. You don’t want them to feel “deprived”, but you also don’t want to give them foods that will make feeding them nutritiously any more of a struggle.
While there are many “healthy cookie” alternatives out there, kids are smart and know the difference. Dense, cardboard-like, and with little flavor or appeal, children want the sweet, sugary treats that all their friends are eating.
So what if you could give your kids a sweet, delicious, and nutritious “cookie” that will have all their friends begging them for more?
You can! The brand is Nature’s Bakery and their line of fig bars are anything but ordinary! With 7 mouth-watering flavors to choose from, your kids will never realize that what you are feeding them is actually healthy!
The Product: Nature’s Bakery has created a line of fig bars that far exceed any you’ve ever tasted. Not only are these bars healthier than their predecessors, they are also more delicious, boasting an array of flavors including: Apple Cinnamon, Blueberry, Whole Wheat Fig, Peach Apricot, Raspberry, Vanilla Fig, and Vanilla Raspberry.
Nature’s Bakery is all about finding balance in life, particularly in regards to wholesome, tasty snacks. Catering to people of all different ages, fitness levels, and lifestyles, they pride themselves on keeping it simple by blending all natural ingredients with great taste and balanced nutrition to give you plenty of energy no matter what your lifestyle or routine.
Nutrition-Wise: Using stone ground wheat as the main ingredient, Nature’s Bakery all natural fig bars are cholesterol-free, dairy free, and kosher, and don’t contain any “unpronounceable” ingredients.
Thanks to the abundance of figs in each bar, which is known to be one of the highest plant sources of both calcium and fiber, each serving is also full of copper, manganese, magnesium, potassium, calcium, vitamin K, and antioxidants. There is even protein in them.
At a little over 100 calories per “cookie”, with 2 cookies per pack, there is about 10 grams of sugar per [1 cookie] serving. In comparison to most treats, this is very reasonable. However, as a mom of a young child, I would suggest giving them these bars in moderation since their sugar intake really should be limited as much as possible. But if this is given as a replacement for your older child’s usual treats or cookies, Nature’s Bakery nutrition definitely trumps the others!
Synopsis: Finding healthy treats for children is always a struggle between the nutrition label and the way the product tastes. And at first glance, I thought Nature’s Bakery fig bars were going to be like all the others. Healthy, yes. But mouth-watering? I mean, how much different can two fig bars be?!
Apparently a lot! Not only are the variety of flavors impressive, so is the texture and the health benefits. Your kids will never suspect that the “cookie” you are giving them is actually good for them. And best of all, you will enjoy them too!
Whether you want an after dinner treat, or something to put into your kids lunch, Nature’s Bakery has something that not only tastes great, but is just as good for you!
