Luckybars are Great for National Nutrition Month (this month) and for Easter (next month!)

Let's talk about what's in his hands! This child right here is a gem. I've said it time and time again. He's easy-going, smart and kind-hearted. He's also a very picky eater. It's my fault, I started off his youth catering to his eating wants, because I too am a picky eater, but then realized it was not a good path to have him on, and now we focus on his eating needs. His siblings all did and do love anything you put on their plate, so this was new for me. Both of us have branched out together, trying new things regularly (several times a week) so we can increase our choices of what we might like to eat, that is also good for us. I'm not going to lie, it was tough going at first, and still is at times, but we are dedicated. He is an athlete and I am getting up there in numbers (*ahem*) so we are both becoming more and more invested on what it is we are putting in our bodies. The one area we both still struggle in, is snacks! It's so easy to pick up a sugar-filled, or salty empty-calorie snack at the grocery store. We really have to slow down and concentrate, to bring home snacks that are going to serve more than one purpose. These Luckybars are a good choice!




Point #1 for me, is that they have 13g of protein in them. That is more than what you would get in 2 eggs. As a vegetarian (me, not my son), I am always looking for ways to up the protein ante (and for the record, I don't like eggs 👀 so these are fantastic right from the get-go to me. They are also non-GMO and gluten-free.


Luckybar comes in 5 delicious flavors: Chocolate Campfire, Cosmic Chocolate Caramel Almond, Crazy Coconut, Pirate Peanut Butter Chocolate and Strawberry Sandcastles.


I asked my son if he liked them, and he said he absolutely did. In fact, he wanted to keep trying them, 'for the sake of the review.' hahahahaha These were great for this month, which is National Nutrition Month, but they'd also be great for next month because Easter will be here and these are the perfect little bars to tuck into Easter Baskets. We enjoyed these, and I recommend them fully for your littles. You can order them at various places online, including Amazon, LuckyVitamin, Vitacost and the Luckybar website.


Nutrition is important at every age, however building a solid nutritional foundation begins during childhood. According to the CDC, most kids do not follow the recommendations set forth in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. This March, it's more important than ever to focus on setting healthy habits and goals for kids.

Enter Luckybar: Founded by a mom and crafted by a doctor, Luckybar is one of the only bars exclusively designed to meet kids' nutritional guidelines and lifestyle. For kids today, 40% of daily calories consumed come from empty calories from added sugars and fats. Luckybar is the only kids bar that has more protein than 2 large eggs and are also low in sugar, carbohydrates, fat and sodium and have no fillers, gluten or preservatives, so you can feel good about what you're giving your kids.

  4. This seems like a nice alternative to eating two eggs or something unhealthy. Your son seems to like them and looks happy in his photo

  5. I love this idea and if he loves them he's way ahead of the game. These are healthy and I've seen kids eat some awful junk food.

    Your son is most handsome.

    Have a fabulous day and week. ♥

  9. I have had a difficult time with healthy snack bars for my son who is also a picky eater! He also doesn't like chocolate, peanut butter, coconut, and strawberries! See what I am dealing with! However, these might work for my daughter! Thanks for sharing!

  10. I like that they are protein filled. (I am not a huge fan of eggs either, but I am a huge fan of yummy snacks!) I really like the name of the flavors they have too!

  12. I haven't seen these health bars. I will have to see where i can find them. I know my daughter can be a picky eater sometimes but it feels like she might like this.

  13. Mica would eat them all up in one sitting. Isaak would go to eat one, and they'd all be gone. LOL! That's what's been happening lately.

  14. I try to meal prep or eat more wholesome food but sometimes it really is just so convenient to get prepacked snacks and food. If you have to do it, you might as well get healthier snacks like these! I eat at least one protein bar a day!

  16. I am a fan of Val Nature and Glucerna protein bars and I would very much love to explore other brands for comparison. Gotta try them all!

  17. That's cute he wanted to keep trying them 'for the sake of the review' - hah hah! He is all charm. These bars do sound good, with all that protein, you know he's getting good nutrition with them.
