just like a bought one (I hope not)
Battle of the Bars.
Bar Wars – the E number Strikes Back.
Viper has Star Wars figurines still in their boxes.
Anyway, back to my baby food bar comparison experiment.
Let’s see them side by side.
Ok, so the one on the right is a little more uniform, a little prettier, but I’m being picky here. It smelt kinds funny too, almost like a fruity perfume? Weird. Obviously it was this bar that started this feverish research into muesli bars made for infants.
I got a free “show bag” at our local supermarket yesterday – a perk of belonging to the ‘Baby Club’ (Oh Joy!) Basically, a bag filled with free samples of baby paraphernalia, coupons and the likes. Sweet – a few packs of free baby wipes never go astray. Included in the bag was a sample-sized “Fruit-filled Bar” made by a company that is considered a ‘health food’ company. Conveniently, as it was a sample bar, there was no nutritional info. Being the geek I am, I googled the product and found all of the information (see Exhibit A).
That was enough for me.
Boosty got the sample bar (on the right, above if you couldn’t tell) and I set to work making my own version.
Easy. Ridiculously easy. Quick, tasty and they contain 6 (!) organic ingredients (that are recognisable). Fancy that.
I know there are worse things that Misty could be eating than a seemingly innocent supermarket- bought fruit bar (and I know he will once the hormones kick in, and he discovers the Whopper with Cheese) but while I’m ruling the roost, I’m going to try my darndest to make sure he gets the best start. For around 20 minutes of my time, I created him something that is less than 1/4 of the price of a bought one, with ingredients of the highest possible quality.
Recipe will follow, I’m going to tweak it, and do some more exciting ‘adult’ versions. No, not that type of ‘adult.’ They’re muesli bars, people. Think of the children.
