Bottom lineNature’s Path Organic Sunrise Breakfast Bars are a yummy gluten-free snack when you're on the go.
Nature’s Path Organic Sunrise Breakfast Bars are gluten-free and come in an array of delicious flavours you can keep on rotatation in your snack drawer. Made with yummy, organic and wholesome ingredients, these granola bars were thoroughly enjoyed by our parent testers and editors, who found them to be a perfect sweet treat when on-the-go.
To help our editors examine the dietary quality, the team consulted registered dietician Cara Rosenbloom, who conducted a blind nutritional analysis (no box labels or brand names were provided). Looking at a 30-gram serving size, Nature’s Path Organic Sunrise Breakfast Bars offered average amounts of fat, fibre and protein, though the Pumpkin-n-Spice, Chunky Choco Peanut and Trail Mixer flavours were on the higher end of the protein spectrum. The bars are also fairly high in sugar, and because they contain nuts, they are not necessarily school-safe, which are things to consider. Label readers will appreciate that ingredients and nutritional label info is clear on the Nature’s Path Organic Sunrise Breakfast Bars boxes.
These sturdy bars held their shape well in a bag and didn't crumble when bitten into—though they do have a sticky consistency that can cling to the wrapper. Our editors also tested the portability of these granola bars, schlepping them back and forth between home and work and vigorously shaking the bag (to simulate a child being less than gentle with a knapsack). The wrappers were the slightest bit rumpled, but otherwise the bars were in perfect condition.
Nature’s Path Organic Sunrise Breakfast Bars were a big hit with our parent testers’ kids. The majority of the hungry offspring enjoyed the texture and taste of all the flavours—and would definitely want to eat them again. Parents were pleased with the serving size and felt good about giving these snacks to their children based on the ingredients and nutrition offered. One parent said she liked the sweetness and was more than happy to give it to her child as a treat.
Parents were overall satisfied with Nature’s Path Organic Sunrise Breakfast Bars. From the organic ingredients to the easy-to-open wrapper, parents felt these snack bars were a great grocery-store pick. As for value, parents thought the ingredients, serving size and how much their kids loved these bars made this product well worth the price. Given this, most parents said they would recommend Nature’s Path Organic Sunrise Breakfast Bars to other families and deemed it well worthy of the Today’s Parent Approved seal. We agree, finding these gluten-free and organic granola bars deliver tons of flavour variety that the whole family can enjoy.
