Recently the folks at ZonePerfect sent me new bars for my kids to try – Kidz Zone Perfect. Thank goodness they were smart enough to send me three so I wouldn’t have my kids fighting over them! I figured my ten-year old would like them as she’s my competitive cheerleader and is always looking for something to grab before practice. My son, who’s 14, will devour everything in the house if I let him. But I was most curious about my youngest daughter’s opinion. She’s my pickiest eater and I worry that she doesn’t eat enough healthy foods. I sneak fruits and veggies in where ever I can but snacks for school are always a challenge as she’s been known to simply throw out the healthy snacks if she doesn’t like them.
Well, as the old Life commercial goes, “She liked it!” I was impressed to learn that ZonePerfect asked everyday moms and their kids to help design the new bars. They held “build-a-bar workshops” where moms could discuss what they expected from a nutrition stand point and kids got to help create the flavors (Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Caramel Crunch, and Yellow Cupcake.) My daughter loved the Yellow Cupcake. I tasted each one of them myself and they really were good. Plus, each bar has 23 vitamins and minerals, five grams of protein and three grams of fiber.
