Review

When your kids are in danger of hitting their hangry maximum, Taste of Nature Granola bars are a great snack option that won’t have you sacrificing nutrition for flavour. Non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan and organic, these granola bars are made from recognizable ingredients and come in three great flavours: Chocolate Pecan Brownie, Oatmeal Cookie and Key Lime Pie. Our parent testers felt good about giving these granola bars to their kids based on the ingredients, and were happy with each bar’s nutritional quality. The kids enjoyed eating them, too, which is kind of the point.

The bar doesn’t crumble, so I could hand it to my daughter in pieces or as a whole and she could eat it without making a mess. It was perfect to give her a piece when I picked her up from daycare and let her eat in the car seat on our way home.” —Alyssa, mom of one

Registered dietitian Cara Rosenbloom  provided her feedback on each granola bar we tested through a blind nutritional analysis. Focusing her analysis on a 30-gram serving size, she found that Taste of Nature Granola Bars have an impressive 4.5-gram fat content and relatively average protein, sugar and fibre content in comparison to the other granola bars we tested.

None of our parent testers had difficulties locating or understanding the nutritional information or ingredients on the packaging to judge this information for themselves. Plus, Taste of Nature Granola Bars earned major points for being made of ingredients you’d be able to pronounce as well as find in your own kitchen. They’re also individually wrapped so you won’t have a problem tossing this bar in your kid’s lunch box (and maybe even your own). Taste of Nature Granola are easy to eat on-the-go without creating a trail of crumbs, although our parents did find their kids needed some assistance with getting the wrapper open.

They taste great, have solid ingredients and great nutritional value. And are Canadian made! Can’t ask for much more.” —Laura, mom of one
