Healthy Halloween!

Sugar, High Fructose Corn Syrup, and Dextrose… oh my!

According to estimates by the U.S Census Bureau, the average American consumes almost 26 pounds of candy each year, a large percentage of it around Halloween. The results? Weight gain, an epidemic of early onset diabetes, mood swings, tooth decay… the list goes on. With increasing health-consciousness in America, many families are reconsidering what to put in trick-o-treaters buckets and bags as they make their annual visit to the front door.

Health Warrior Chia Bars make a perfect replacement to high-sugar, empty-calorie-filled, non-nutrient providing candy. They come in three delicious flavors: Peanut Butter Chocolate, Coconut, and Acai Berry. They have only 100 calories and 5g of sugar per serving. And best of all, there are actual health BENEFITS to eating them: Chia provides six times more calcium than whole milk, six times more protein than soy, 15 times more magnesium than broccoli does, twice the fiber then bran flakes, and nearly nine times the amount of omega-3s than found in salmon.
