Best Snack Foods - part 1

Best Fiber Bar:  Fiber One Chewy Bars Oats & Peanut Butter

Per bar:
150 calories
4.5 g fat
9 g sugars
3 g protein
9 g fiber
With about a third of your day’s recommended fiber intake, this is the ideal snack for those days when your produce and whole grain intake are below par.

Best All-Natural Bar:  Lärabar Pecan Pie

Per bar:
220 calories
13 g fat
18 g sugars
3 g protein
4 g fiber
It’s a lot of sugar, but every gram of it comes from natural dates, and other than that, there are only two ingredients in this bar: pecans and almonds. It’s like trail mix compressed into a neat, easy-to-carry package.

Best Fruit-Filled Bar: Kashi TLC Soft-Baked Cereal Bars Ripe Strawberry

Per bar:
130 calories
3 g fat
9 g sugars
2 g protein
3 g fiber
The fruity interior provides a fresh burst of sweetness, and the whole-grain exterior counters it with a nutty flavor that reminds you you’re still eating real food.

Best Vegetable Juice: V8 100% Vegetable Juice, Low Sodium

Per 8 fl oz:
50 calories
0 g fat
140 mg sodium
2 g protein
2 g fiber
Each cup counts as two servings of vegetables, making this a wise beverage to drink in the wake of a produce-less lunch.

Best Chili

Kettle Cuisine Three Bean Chili

Per container:
220 calories
3.5 g fat
450 mg sodium
11 g protein
13 g fiber
No food is better than chili for bringing together fiber and protein in such a flavor-loaded package. This one earns our love by combining three different beans with four different peppers.
