Back To School With ZBar Protein [Giveaway, Ended 8/12]

  Here in Western Colorado, the kids have already headed back to school.  You read that right, the first week of August.  (Disgusting! Don't even get me started...that's a whole other topic. )  At the top of my "Hooo-boy, here we go" Mom Angst List is this:  Trying to pack healthy lunches, in a hurry, each morning for my daughter to take to school. That's one of the reasons why I dearly love Clif Kid ZBars.  My kids devour them, they are quick and easy snacks to throw in a lunchbox, and the ZBar Protein bars contain even higher levels of protein to keep them fuller, longer. And in a stroke of genius (you polled a bunch of kids, didn't you Clif??), all three flavors of ZBar Protein contain CHOCOLATE - Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Mint, and Peanut Butter Chocolate. They think they're getting a treat.  Meanwhile, you're sneaking into their diet: 5g of Protein 3g Fiber Organic Whole Grains No high fructose corn syrup, synthetic preservatives or artificial … [Read more...]

Clif Kid Zfruit & Veggie Ropes [Giveaway, Ended 2/20]

Any active, on-the-go family would likely agree it's a challenge to find convenient, yet healthy, snacks to have on hand.   In our household, we think Clif Kid products do a nice job at tackling this problem, offering yummy, energy fueled snacks that our kids love... which are also nutritious.  And now there's another tasty option added to the lineup:  Clif Kid Zfruit + Veggie Ropes. Clif Kid Zfruit + Veggie Ropes Fruit seems to work it's way into our diet fairly regularly, and given the option I do like to feed my kids fresh fruit.  Fresh fruit doesn't always travel well, however, like when it's shoved into the cramped confines of a school or hiking backpack. And veggies are a whole other story.  I find it a constant challenge to try and include more of them into our diet.  So when you start talking about working some vegetables into the mix, in a kids snack... you have my attention! Enter the new Clif Kid Zfruit + Veggie Ropes.  Described as "a tangy, twisted fruit and veggie … [Read more...]

Variety of Energy Snack Choices from Clif Bar

Most on-the-go families are fans of the energy bar.  Whether it's fuel for our hike, or just fuel for my kids while running errands, we typically have an assortment of energy bars stocked in both the vehicles and mom's purse, at all times.  And Clif Bars are a definite favorite at our house. Clif Bar recently sent me an assortment of flavors and types to try.  First let me say the standard Clif Bar is a hiking and pre-workout staple for me, and are always found in my backpack and gym bag.   They come in fantastic flavor  options, deliver great energy, and I love the square-ish size and chewy texture.  Most people are familiar with these, and beyond this lil' shout out, I'm not going to feature them in this particular post. Our Clif Bar samples included a surprising and delightful variety, so allow me to tell you about the 3 Best in Class (in my opinion) here... Clif Kid Z-Bar I started with this one, because it's already an established staple for us, and we purchase them … [Read more...]
