I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central for Nutri-Grain. I received product samples and promotional item to thank me for participating.
I have mentioned before how important it is to keep nutritious yet ready-to-go snacks and meals for your family. The hardest time to do that (in my opinion) is in the mornings – at least I think it is. Between getting myself, and 3 kids ready for the day and out the door on time breakfast
rarely never gets made on the weekdays in our house. If it’s not already made, pre-packaged, or can be heated up in a hurry, it is not on my grocery list for breakfast. Who has time for all that?! If you do, kudos to you but please don’t rub it in. I hate mornings – always have, and most likely always will.
We are big fans of Nutri Grain bars around our house, and we always have some handy, so when I heard about the Nutri Grain Fruit & Oat Harvest bar I was excited to try it. The Fruit & Oat Harvest bars come in 2 familiar flavors – Blueberry Bliss, and Country Strawberry. With 4 grams of protein and made with real fruit & whole grains (and only 180 calories!) this is a great fast breakfast for people on the go. One of my favorite parts is the convenient individual packages that I can take with me to work – I can throw them in my purse on the go, leave them in my car or even in my desk at work (they also make great snacks for an after-lunch-pick-me-up, as well as a before bed snack)!
I actually eat my Harvest bars in the car on the way to work, but I figured that probably wasn’t the best idea to try to eat, drive and take a picture. So as I was working late the other night I wanted a snack, and thought I’d share with you just how easy it is to grab one – no matter how busy your schedule. More nutritious then a donut, or chips, Nutri Grain Fruit & Oat Harvest bars are sold in boxes of five at most retailers nationwide for $3.59 a box.
