Clif Kid Twisted Fruit and ZBaRs: Review and Giveaway

I am fortunate enough to teach at the school my children attend.  I love it, but one of the “cons” is that we don’t have time for a sit-down breakfast most days of the week as I have to hurry to school and that means the kids do too.  I am always eating breakfast on the run and have long relied on Clif Bars to hold me over til lunchtime.  When I was contacted to try Clif Kid products, I was ecstatic!  If you have never heard of Clif Products, you will love learning about all the great things this company is doing for our health and the health of our planet.  From the website:  “We use organic ingredients in all our products.  Food grown organically-without the use of toxic pesticides or synthetic chemicals- is better for the planet, the body, and the soul.  And all our food is free of trans fats, hydrogenated oils, and high fructose corn syrup.”

Both of my kids are pretty good eaters but I have found that if I have something new I want them to try, instead of announcing it I simply put it in their lunchboxes without saying a word.  So, after getting my delivery from Clif, I put a Strawberry Twisted Fruit in my son’s lunchbox and a S’mores ZBaR in my daughter’s lunch.   When school ended that day, both kids had empty lunchboxes and good things to say about the goodies in them that day.  Nicolas loved the Twisted Fruit and asked if he could have another for a snack.   Emily loved her ZBaR and asked if I would send her one “every day!”  I felt good knowing that my son got a full serving of Organic fruit and some extra Vitamin C and my daughter got a great serving of Organic whole grains and neither got any artificial flavors or preservatives.

Look Mom! No preservatives!

After finishing our sample box we decided that the S’mores and Peanut Butter are our favorite ZBaRs and Strawberry and Grape are the best of the Twisted Fruit.  There are many other tempting flavors for your crew to try!   I am always on the lookout for healthy snacks to fill the pantry with and now that I am familiar with Clif Kid snacks I plan to have them as a staple in our house!
