What is a healthy purchased "bar" snack?

JudiAU | Sep 21, 2012 12:54 PM

Our Whole Foods has about 4,000 bar snacks (Cliff, Lara, KIND) so I get this is a a popular snack category. Why? And are they healthy? Do they actually make a reasonable snack for a five year old?

We ate granola bars on occasion and I occasionally buy these: but Kashi has lost my business over stinky behavior over GMOs and California ballot proposal to force GMO labeling.

So, are they healthy and as what and if so what kind?
