ABBOTT PARK, Ill., May 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Parents know that kids need good nutrition to be their healthiest and grow to their full potential but when you're constantly on the go, it can be hard to find wholesome snacking options that kids will actually eat. With the launch of Curate Kids – a new line of nutritious snack bars made with good-for-you ingredients in kid-approved flavors – parents don't need to compromise. This filling snack is the perfect choice to help give your kids the fuel they need to get through a car ride, sports practice, camping trip, playground adventure or any occasion that calls for a snack between meals.
"We want to help parents win the snack time battle with great-tasting, on-the-go options that don't compromise on nutrition," Daniel Marple, general manager, Nutritious Snacks, Abbott, said. "Any parent knows that when it comes to getting your kids to eat what they should, taste is key. Curate Kids is a snack that kids will enjoy and that parents can feel good about."
Curate Kids bars are non-GMO, gluten-free and made with no artificial preservatives, flavors or colors. The bars contain 4 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber, and will launch in three kid-inspired flavors:
"Nutritious snacks can help keep kids alert and satisfied in-between meals, making them an important part of a child's eating routine," said culinary nutritionist Katie Cavuto, MS, RD. "As a mom and dietitian, I know it's hard to find options that taste good and fit my nutritional standards. That's why I like Curate Kids bars which contain whole grains as well as plant based fiber and protein – nutrients every kid needs. And best of all, the familiar flavors will please even the pickiest palettes."
Curate Kids snack bars are available at retail stores nationwide – find them in the snack bar section next to original Curate bars. Curate Kids bars' suggested retail price is $4.99 for a 5-pack.
