How’s your fiber intake?

Am I getting too personal? Come on, you can tell me.

Good, bad, not sure? If you need a little help, I have just the thing; General Mills’ Fiber One oats & chocolate bars.

The bars are chewy without being mushy, sweet without being too sweet and there’s no way anyone can tell that fiber is added.

My husband and oldest daughters love them and had them several mornings for breakfast, making them a perfect grab-and-go food for a busy morning. If you buy chewy granola bars already, go a step further and get these. They provide 35 percent of your daily value of fiber and no trans fats. The bars are definitely not a candy bar and they also aren’t a replacement for a balanced meal; but in a pinch with a glass of milk (these are also a good source of calcium) or juice they fill in nicely when you don’t have time for something else.

They look delicious! And by the way, I'd try almost anything recommended by you.

Though the nutritional info does not show trans fats, the ingredients do include both hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup, both of which are best to avoid.
