It's good to eat as diverse a range of fruit as possible. Fruits are great sources of antioxidants, and each fruit contains its own particular set of antioxidants that can help the body in different ways. Fruits also contain a good range of sugars, that provide energy in a controlled manner.
Fruit makes a great snack, but of course, not everybody can carry loads of fruit around with them all day. This is where snack bars come in. At Healthy Supplies, we research our snack bars quite carefully, and only sell high-fruit ones. Many snack bars, even healthy-looking ones, contain added sugar, which is completely unnecessary and which increases the "pointless calorie" count of a fruit bar. All of the bars that we sell are unsweetened, and only contain a minimal number of extra ingredients (usually to bind or preserve the bar), and in many cases the bars that we sell are 100% fruit and nut with no added ingredients at all.
All of the fruit bars that we sell have: No sulphur dioxide. No added sugar. No artificial sweeteners. Just the natural sweetness of the fruit. Children will like these, and you will like the fact that children will like them; rather than snack bars being a bad thing, with these they are actually a health food. It is a result for common-sense, tasty, healthy eating.
