I love a good granola bar! As a busy mom with two kids I am always looking for snacks that 1. my kids will like and 2. that are good alternatives to the sugary snacks they gravitate toward. Kraft Foods just launched their MILKBITE Milk and Granola Bars that provide the same amount of calcium as an 8 oz glass of milk. The bars are found in the dairy aisle as they need to be refrigerated and they taste yummy! The taste is smooth, cool and tastes just like a chewy granola bar but with some benefits!
I tried the chocolate flavor (they can really satisfy you if you are having a chocolate craving!) but they also have strawberry, peanut butter, oatmeal raisin and mixed berry. These bars contain 5 grams of protein, 7 grams of whole grains and they are a good source of vitamin D and fiber. There is no high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. I like them as lately I have not been drinking enough milk and they are an excellent source of calcium with 30% of the daily recommended value. They retail for $3.49 a box. Hope you enjoy this new snack option.
