HALF MOON BAY, Calif.--()--Finding snack options that are nutritious, taste good and are approved by kids is almost impossible! Now, Odwalla is challenging the odds with the introduction of a new line of food bars with whole grains made specifically for kids, giving parents a wholesome and delicious snack to serve to youngsters on the go.
“It’s so important, and so difficult, to manage kids’ diets in today’s non-stop world. At Odwalla, we’re always looking to create healthful solutions for busy moms and dads”
Odwalla® Bars for Kids come in three kid-friendly flavors: Chocolate Chip Kick™, Strawberry Score™, and Banana Dunk™. Each flavor contains 11 to 12 grams of organic whole-grains. That’s equal to about 25 percent of the whole grains needs as recommended by the Whole Grains Council. Each bar contains 130 – 140 calories, and is a good source of fiber* and an excellent source of calcium to help support healthy bones.
