Clif Bar Introduces Organic Products for Kids

Eat it: Clif Kid ZBaR and Twisted Fruit

What it is: The makers of the Clif Bar have two new organic products just for kids. The ZBaR, a low-fat energy bar made with whole oats and fortified with vitamins and minerals, comes in six flavors, including chocolate brownie, peanut butter and blueberry. Twisted Fruit, also with six flavors to choose from, is a fruit snack with no added sugars, and each piece equals one serving of organic fruit.

The kid consensus: Our kid testers generally thought the bars were OK, but especially loved the fruit snacks. One teen used the Clif Kid products for extra energy during his swim team practice.

The parents' position: We honestly thought the bars were on the gross side, but were pleasantly surprised by the fruit twists. With very little sugar and loads of vitamins, Twisted Fruit is an excellent snack for kids _ and parents!

Price: A box of six ZBaRs is $4.95, and a box of 18 Twisted Fruit snacks is $15.99 at They're also available at area stores such as Whole Foods, Target, Wal-Mart and select grocery stores. Call your local store for availability.
