Simple Ingredients for Healthy Life
Eat Healthy, Stay Healthy. What do they say about eating an apple a day? Keeps the doctor away? Fruit is an integral part of a healthy diet.
Bear Fruit Bars – the all-natural all-fruit bars made with organically grown apples, blueberries, cherries, and raspberries. They stay moist and chewy longer, thanks to a process developed by ARS scientists in California.
They are moist and chewy with no added sweeteners/sugars. These are more like real fruit than fruit roll ups or fruit leather because they contain the whole fruit - including the nutrient-dense peel. It’s a better way of providing energy and fiber by using the natural goodness of real fruit. Bear Fruit Bars meet schools’ and the FDA’s criteria for Healthy Snacks, and have passed the most rigorous taste tests conducted by seven year olds.
So if you want a convenient, great tasting snack when you are at work, if you want a healthy energy source for your workouts, or if you want something that is both healthy and something kids really like, Bear Fruit Bars fit the bill.
One bar is roughly the equivalent of 1 and a half apples. They can help Americans meet recommended dietary guidelines for fruits and vegetables. Nearly 80 percent of all American adults fall short of that goal.
