Best for Kids: Clif Z Bars
Our top flavor pick: Z Bar Chocolate Brownie
Bar Stats: 120 calories, 3g protein, 3g fat (1g saturated), 3g fiber, 12g sugar
Pros: Downsized to meet pint-size energy and nutrient needs, Z bars have enough sweetness to appeal as cookies. Yet, they offer a bit of protein and fiber to make a better snack. For teens and older kids: Clif Mojo Peanut Butter & Jelly offers a little less fiber than a PBJ on whole grain bread, but a little more protein too. At 220 calories and nine grams of protein, it's not a bad choice when older kids are caught without something to eat.
Cons: Doesn't let kids appreciate the best nutrition—whole foods.
