School is back in session here in South Florida, which means lots of running around, after school activities, homework and lots of school events to attend. This means that I am quite often cooking dinner just after lunch time, so that it is ready for when we get in the door after 7:30 pm. On days like that the kids (and mom too) often needs an after school pick-me-up, and the new Fiber One snacks are great afternoon treats for both parents and the kids.

Whether we are headed for the playground waiting for big brother to get out of school, waiting for a swim class, or need a pick-me up before homework, the Fiber One snacks are great for afternoon snacks. The days are long, and this year they are even longer, as our kids have an extra hour of school. I’ll admit it by the time 4 o’clock comes around, I am beat….and I am not even anywhere near done.
The Fiber One snacks are also a nice sweet treat, if I am able to put our little one in for a nap (which doesn’t always happen) after lunch and before the kids needs to be picked up. I usually get writing done, do housework, but just once in a while it is nice to put my feet up for a few minutes with a good book…and a Fiber One streusel bar. It doesn’t happen often, but it sure is a great way to reenergize.
The new Fiber One Streusel bars have real fruit on top, and the crunchiness makes a perfect sweet treat. Our kids love the new Fiber One strawberry streusel bars.
The new Fiber One cookies are a big hit around here, and with four kids the box of Fiber One cookies is emptied in seconds. The Fiber One cookies are wrapped separately, which makes portion control easier, and it also makes it easier to bring along on the go.
Fiber One Streusel, our first bars made with real fruit (made with dried apples and strawberry puree concentrate), and the bar contains 12 grams of whole grains per serving. The Streusel bars have 20% of the daily value of fiber and are 150 calories per serving.
Fiber One soft-baked Cookies can be found in the cookie aisle, and are another new item you can find in the cookie aisle! Individually wrapped for on-the-go portion control, each cookie has 5 grams of fiber per serving — That’s 20% of the daily value! — Fiber One Cookies are a delightfully soft and chewy cookie that you can feel good about. You no longer have to avoid the cookies aisle!
