7 Healthy Grab & Go Breakfast Bars for Busy Mornings

Breakfast Bars for Busy Mornings

If you’re tired of eating your kids’ leftovers as you rush out the door in the morning, a breakfast bar can be a morning meal lifesaver. Just because you’re in a rush doesn’t mean you can’t fuel up with a healthy breakfast. Pair any of these bars with some greek yogurt, a piece of fruit, or some hard boiled eggs (and don’t forget the caffeine!) for a convenient grab-and-go breakfast that’s ready in no time at all.

Kind Breakfast Bars (Best Texture)

These bars’ compact size lets them easily fit into your purse or pocket, and they come in a package of two. Available in a choice of three different flavours to tickle your tastebuds, each bar contains at least 8 grams of protein and ample fibre from 100% whole grains to help keep you feeling full until lunchtime.  kindsnacks.ca

Made from whole, real fruits, they come in several flavours that both parents and kids are sure to enjoy, and help get in two of your daily recommended servings of fruits and vegetables. Be sure to pair these with a protein source to help prevent blood sugar spikes.  thatsitfruit.com
