WHAT ARE THE BEST NUTRITION BARS?
Nutrition bars are quick and easy snack options – however, it is important to read the food labels in order to choose the most nutritious one.

- Choose one with protein (shoot for >5 grams)
- Choose one that contains fiber (shoot for >3 grams)

- Choose ones sweetened with fruit (these are natural sugars, which are OK)
