Snacks Made Easier & Healthier – Pure Bars

Are we all counting the days when our youngins’ head back to school? I am already thinking about the 160 lunches I will have to prepare for my daughter throughout the year. Yikes! Plus this little 6 year old has been a vegetarian since she started eating solid foods. Thank goodness I discovered these Pure Organics bars. Veroncia Bosgraaf created these bars when her 6 year old daughter made a conscious decision not to eat meat again. They are raw, organic, gluten-free, kosher and full of fruits and nuts with no refined sugars, no chemicals, no genetically-modified stuff. They are packed full of antioxidants, vitamins, and omega-3 fats, fiber and protein.

I bought one of each; Apple Cinnamon, Cherry-Cashew, Chocolate Brownie, Cranberry-Orange, Trail Mix and Wild Blueberry, to see which one my daughter liked, thinking that the only one she will go for is the chocolate one. To my surprise she liked them all! And so did her 4 year old sister.

I feel that I found the perfect solution to make those lunches just a little easier for me. I just need to add a (reusable) bottle of water, a few (whole grain) crackers and a cookie and she is good to go. Her lunch box will surely come home empty this year!

Go to to purchase online or to locate a store near you (Trader Joe’s & Whole Foods carry them).
