Label reading for Muesli bars- what a minefield!!
✅these Carman’s ones are a pretty good option as they are quite low in added sugar and a good source of whole grains
✅compare muesli bars by looking at the sugar per 100g and generally go for the lowest option
✅remember though- if the muesli bar contains fruit, the natural fruit sugar is included in the sugars line
✅in this situation check out the ingredients list and see whether fruit sits before sugar in the ingredients list (ingredients are listed from largest to smallest ingredient)
❌generally avoid those with 20g of sugar or more per 100g
✅check for whole grain content (in the ingredients list) and go for the highest
✅check fibre per serve (per bar) to see what benefit your child gets from the actual muesli bar - 3g of fibre or more per serve is good.
✅you don’t generally need to worry about fat or sodium (salt) in muesli bars
