Can another bar makes it’s mark on the grocery store shelves? I think so! That’s why I picked Pressed by KIND as this week’s Supermarket RD’s Pick.
It’s no secret I love KIND bars, so I was super excited when I saw this new line – Pressed by KIND.
Not only do they taste delicious; each bar is made with five simple ingredients or less – only fruit, vegetables or chia (with no sugar added!).
If you haven’t heard, KIND created the Nutrition Collective, a group of registered dietitians to work collectively with KIND to help people be kinder to their bodies. As a member, you get wide range of resources like nutrition information, product samples, coupons, early access to KIND’s health and wellness initiatives. If you are interested in joining, apply here.
Their latest newsletter featured these new Pressed by KIND bars.
According to the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, one component of a healthy diet includes a variety of whole fruits and vegetables. From fresh to dried to frozen – vegetables and fruits are nutritious in all forms! Though daily recommendations vary based on age and activity level, adults who are somewhat physically active should consume 1 ½-2 cups of fruit and 2-3 cups of vegetables per day.
When you are “pressed” for time these Pressed by KIND bars come in handy. Each Pressed by KIND™ bar counts as 1 cup of fruit or 50% of the recommended daily fruit intake according to the USDA MyPlate guidelines. Plus, they are:
- gluten free
- good source of fiber
- no preservatives
- dairy free
Disclosure: KIND did not sponsor this post. Although I am part of KIND’s Nutrition Collective and received samples of the new Pressed by KIND bars, all thoughts and opinions are my own to share healthy items found in your grocery store to RDelicious Kitchen readers.
