Nutri-Grain Bars: Not So Healthy

Nutri-Grain Bars - they sound healthy. I bet you know this, but just because a food has the word "grain" in it, doesn't mean it's a healthy whole grain. Along the same line, the word "Nutri" on a box doesn't actually mean the product's nutritious.

I checked out the nutritional information on strawberry filled Nutri-Grain Cereal Bars and the very 1st ingredient is high fructose corn syrup. The 2nd ingredient is corn syrup. What kind of a snack is this?

I found a healthier alternative. Nature's Choice makes Mutigrain Strawberry Cereal Bars and get this - The 1st ingredient is fruit juice concentrate, and the 2nd is strawberry puree.

Another great thing? On the box, there is that little Whole grain stamp so you know it's made with heart healthy whole grains and NOT enriched flour like in the Nutri-Grain bars.

When you bite into one of Nature's Choice cereal bars, you can actually feel the texture of the whole grain oats. They are wheat and dairy free, and the real strawberries and dates make it naturally sweet.

Fit's Tips: Manufacturers will do anything to get you to buy their products. Many of them don't care about keeping you healthy, they just want to take your money. So be a responsible consumer - always read the nutritional information just to make sure you're getting what you want.
