Odwalla introduces new food bars for kids

HALF MOON BAY, Calif. — Odwalla this week announced new food bars designed specifically for kids made with whole grains and fruits, the company said.

Odwalla Bars for Kids come in three flavors: Chocolate Chip Kick, Strawberry Score and Banana Dunk. Each flavor contains 11 to 12 g of organic whole-grains, equal to about 25% of the whole grains needs as recommended by the Whole Grains Council. Each bar also contains 130 to 140 calories, and is a good source of fiber and calcium.

“It’s so important, and so difficult, to manage kids’ diets in today’s nonstop world. At Odwalla, we’re always looking to create healthful solutions for busy moms and dads,” said Irma Shrivastava, vice president of marketing, Odwalla.

All three bars are available in 1.28-oz. single units and in multi-packs. Odwalla Bars for Kids can be found at natural food stores, select supermarkets and specialty outlets nationwide.
