Looking for a quick bite? Cereal, protein and snack bars are always a great healthy snack option – that is, when you pick the right ones. Not all snack bars were created equally. Most of them are less balanced and nutritious than we may think. In fact, a lot of the ones that claim to be healthy, are loaded with sugar, fat, and artificial ingredients.
What to look out for in cereal bars:
- look for the least amount of ingredients
- if sugar is the second or third ingredient, skip to the next cereal bar
- if you can’t pronounce most of the ingredients, don’t eat it
- if most of the fat comes from saturated fat, its not a good option
