Years and years ago, family meals were the norm. Families getting together, sharing a nutritious meal, and talking about the days' activities at the dinner table was just the way it was. In many families today, life has changed. Although families are encouraged to eat together, the reality is that many families are overscheduled and rushed. Do nutrition bars offer an alternative?
First and foremost, skipping a meal is never recommended. Of all the options in a rushed day, choosing to not eat is probably the worst. Eating a nutrition bar is always better than eating nothing at all.
What a nutrition bar offers is convenience. It offers on-the-go food. It also offers a quick energy boost at sports practice or right after school. As a result, the marketplace has been flooded with bar choices - protein bars, diet bars, energy bars, cereal bars, and so on.
