  1. These are all good commercial bars, unfortunately such healthy preferences often means “expensive” with a box being about $6 for 6 bars,
    as opposed to 2 boxes for$5 totaling 12 bars. Most families are budget orientated especially at this time of increased food pricing.
    When choices offeried for nutritional basics are cheaper with unhealthier ingredients, its still food and a priviledge to be able to afford
    simply good for us food.

    We use granola bars and fruity cookies for convenience and school lunches so a customer is born with each new family or student.
    Parents would prefer the more nutritious ones to “walk the walk” in providing and eating less processed food. Working with the food groups and the suggested Daily Intake Value and not encourage the idea that all granola bars or pre-packaged lunch items are healthy.

    An inevitable change in their palette will oppreciate more subtleties in flavours and unmasked tastes that arent overshadowed by high salt, high sugar, transfats, and preservatives and few vitamins and minerals. Those with special diets of lactose free, gluten-free, nut-free for schools or workplaces, have no choice unless they can make their own and then its affordable.

    Oh how wonderful it would be if the most convenient and nutritious options were the ” Standard or Basis or Regular or a Given” with increased vegetables, protein, some fruit, natural flavours and more genetic varieties. As we all know these days the negatives of a poor diet can be, whether is shows up in our health or unhealth (disease), mental efficiency or deficiency, physical successes or struggles (especially the increases in the obesity rate and having bigger bodies)

    I thank Brittany for this article, the website realgoodeats for providing information I and many people want and for the availability of more foods for different diet choices not only in the health and mainstream food industry but in restaurants too these days.
    Kind of long opinion, thanks for reading. A mother.

    1. Thank you for your comment. Yes, unfortunately, convenience often comes at a higher price point. Especially when limited to allergen-friendly or more specialty options. Hopefully, this will change as more companies begin providing allergen-free items.
