Going back to preschool means packing daily lunches for my 4 year old. I love when I can find healthy treats that are quick to pack in her lunchbox. Even better when those treats are delicious, as she’ll be sure to eat them! I’ve been a fan of Enviro-Kids for awhile. Both Kieran and Brendan love the Gorilla Munch cereal (it’s a Breakfast and snack-time favorite). I was excited to sample their new soon-to-be lunchbox favorite, the Chocolate Crispy Rice Bars.
I’m happy to say…they are Yummy! My daughter loves them as well. I don’t usually put candy or sweets in her lunchbox, but will feel good about putting these in there because they are whole grain. Since she loves the way they taste, they’ll be sure to get eaten up at each sitting! They have a mild chocolate flavor and a great, chewy consistency.
These after- lunch treats (.5oz, 50 calories, 1.5 g fat) are whole grain, low fat and low sodium and, for the growing number kids who are avoiding gluten, also gluten-free. Like all Nature’s Path products, they are USDA certified organic, which means they are grown without the use of pesticides (as well as other unappealing things like synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms and radiation), which is especially important for kids, since a study found children having high levels of pesticides were twice as likely to be diagnosed with ADHD.
Even sweeter, one percent of sales will be donated to non-profit organizations that benefit habitat conservation, endangered species and youth education, like all EnviroKidz products.
In addition to lunch boxes, these treats are great for moms’ purses and kids’ trick-or-treat bags!
BUY IT: These will hit grocery shelves in late on 8/29! Retail price is $4.99-5.99. The Treat Size EnviroKidz chocolate Crispy Rice Bars will be on shelves nationwide around August 29th. They will be available at Whole Foods, Sprouts Markets and where you buy other EnviroKidz products nationwide.
