It’s a new week! You know I go for the gold when it comes to getting the week off to an organized, peaceful and healthy start. One of the quests for gold has been to find healthy items to pack in my 6 year old’s backpack for snack-time. I want that big brain of his to thrive, and for him to have energy to last throughout his schooldays. One of the other important parameters for snacks is that they need to be dairy free, since my son has a dairy allergy. I’m so grateful for all of the options that we have for my little guy, so many yummy alternatives. My son’s school, like most, is a peanut-free facility, so I want to be sure I’m protecting other children with what I include in my son’s backpack. Although I love the idea of making things from scratch, some weeks I need a little help from my grocer!
Dairy and Tree Nut Free Breakfast Bars: The Hunt for Yummy
Keeping the important parameters in place, we’ve tried quite a few ideas and brands. I’ve found lots of breakfast bars that fit the bill, however they do not get the stamp of approval from my hungry guy. So, when I find a golden nugget that my son is happy to eat, my glamorous moms, I love to share. I spotted the box of Kind Breakfast bars out of the corner of my eye at the grocery store, excited to see that there was a chocolate variety. Chocolate, as you may know, tends to crack open the door of interest from my kids. You can imagine my glee when I read that the Kind Breakfast Dark Chocolate Cocoa bars were both dairy and tree nut free! Onward they went, cart, and home to the critics. Glee multiplied when my son gobbled them up and asked for another.
Dairy and Tree Nut Free Breakfast Bars: Protein and Fiber too?
Yes! Each serving size contains 4 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber! Kind Breakfast Dark Chocolate Cocoa bars contain 22 grams of whole grains. They are also are made with oats, dried cane syrup, brown rice flour, canola oil, sugar, gum acacia, chocolate liquor, raisin paste, water, oat flour, cocoa powder, honey, millet, buckwheat, amaranth, quinoa, cocoa butter, cinnamon, vanilla extract, salt, soy lecithin and vitamin E.
