Great Kids Snacks - Oatmeal Squares

Details: Nature Valley Soft-Baked Oatmeal Squares are like a soft cookie with all the goodness that a granola bar would give you. They are made with 100% natural whole grain oats and contain 12-16 grams of whole grains per serving. They have 9 grams of sugar or less. They are about 155 calories each.
Review: These soft-baked oatmeal squares are a great alternative to the hard and chewy granola bars. They are fairly tasty, but they are crumbly. They come in two flavors, Cinnamon and Brown Sugar, and Peanut Butter. Of all the years of buying granola bars for snacks, it's about time they came up with something like this. They aren't exactly like a cookie, and because of that, I think the peanut butter flavor isn't what I was expecting. It's nothing like a peanut butter cookie, but it is ok.

Pros: Another good choice when getting granola type bars.

Cons:  These definitely are not for anyone with nut allergies, or wheat allergies. They get a B- on the Fooducate website for having 2.5 teaspoons of sugar per serving and for being highly processed.

My Rating:  Thumbs Up for a decent flavor and alternative to granola bars.  Thumbs Down for not being more nutritious and healthy.
