Fiber One Bars–Epic Fail

The mornings can be hectic getting ready for work, rousing a 5-year-old for Kindergarten, and calming a preteen in outfit crisis.  I hit the grocery last week in hopes of grabbing something healthy for the kids to eat quickly if that unexpected event put us in time crunch mode.  Wow, I should have used my fooducate app at the store before bringing these goodies home.  They get a “D” rating which is downright awful.  Who knew?  Read those labels!
