Muesli bars are healthier than chocolate - food rules made to be broken - Women's Health & Fitness

A muesli bar is healthier than a chocolate bar

Before you buy any sort of ‘health bar’, take a look at the fat, sugar and kilojoule intake.

Many bars, especially ones that contain yoghurt, chocolate chips, nuts or dried fruit, will be high in sugar and fat, and add, without your realising, to your overall daily kilojoule intake.

“Snack smart,” Diversi says. “Check your kilojoule label and compare products. If you’re peckish, have a piece of fruit or even a Freddo Frog, which is much lower in kilojoules than a muesli bar.”
