Our expert says:
The problem with many of these so-called 'health bars' are that they are high in fat. The bars that state that they are 'high-energy bars' do usually supply a good energy boost for athletes and very active individuals. Slimming bars must be checked to see if they are actually low in kJ and also that they don't contain very high levels of added vitamins and minerals because eating a couple a day can lead to overdosing. So read the labels and compare the energy content per 100g to that of a chocolate bar when you want to purchase such products. You may well find that the 'health bar' contains more energy than the chocolate bar!
