Good Tips for Choosing a Great Breakfast Bar

Breakfast bars are a great idea, in theory. However, some mainstream breakfast bars are high in sugar, low in protein and very low in taste. So before you buy a box of new breakfast bars, be sure to check out these requirements for picking a good bar:

  • It should not have more than 15 grams of sugar.
  • It should have 5 grams or more of fiber.
  • It should have at least 5 grams of protein.
  • It should contain 25% of the DV for calcium.

A good pick: Luna's Whole Grain Sunrise Bars have 8 g of protein and 5 g of fiber, plus 35% of the daily value for calcium. (180 cal, 4.5 g fat, 2 g sat fat). You can buy a box of 15 for $19.99 online at

Luna Bars are great! I usually have one when I really want chocolate but should be eating better! They usually take care of it. You can get them $10 for 10 at Target sometimes-- that's when I stock up.

Ouch, I just checked my bars and they have only 1.5 gr of protein, 1.1 fiber, but also only 0.3 sugar (but 16 carbs). But I wanted to switch anyways as they don't taste that spectacular either....
