It is usually during pregnancy that women are suddenly concerned about eating healthy and organic. That's how it was with our first child, thankfully she was the one that changed our eating habits! We didn't always eat healthy and I didn't always cook everything from scratch. Right now, thinking back to how many frozen processed lunches and dinners my husband and I consumed before kids raises my eyebrows!
I am 16 weeks pregnant this week and you know what, I am always hungry. It seems that half an hour after a meal I need to eat again! So needless to say, I snack non-stop. When I am home that means I make a lot of smoothies, bake cookies, and have fresh fruit or veggies with hummus on hand. But when we are out and about (which is nearly every day) I need something that I can just keep in the diaper bag and that will not spoil. We received a variety pack of BumbleBars and six new Jr. BumbleBars to try.
What a perfect healthy snack for anyone, especially if you're prego! For example, the Amazing Almond bar has 23% of the daily value of fat - the good kind that your growing baby needs. It has 7 grams of protein, a whopping 15% DV of iron, and 40% vitamin E... And more.
The taste is absolutely delicious. The only reason I can think of why someone possibly wouldn't like them is if you don't like sesame and flax seeds - because that's mostly what it is made of! I opened the box in front of my toddler and we tried the first bar together. Oh boy, wish I knew it would be followed by overflowing tears when I put it away - and my toddler is not easily upset. She loved it so much, she now asks for it as 'snack bar'.
