Pesticides, chemicals and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in Halloween goodies seem more like a trick than a treat. So, this year Nature’s Path is making the holiday a little healthier for all the ghosts and goblins with USDA certified organic Chocolate Treat Size Crispy Rice Bars.
Parents can feel better about passing out these new Nature’s Path treats on Halloween: in addition to being organic, the bars are whole grain, low fat, low sodium, and non-GMO verified. And, for the growing number of trick-or-treaters who are avoiding gluten – whether it is due to celiac disease, gluten intolerance, or a restrictive diet for other conditions – the Treat Size bars are also certified gluten free by the Gluten Free Certification Organization.
Unhealthy snacks can cause more harm for kids than Halloween-night sugar-highs according to studies that find children who ingest high levels of pesticides (which can be found in non-organic foods) are twice as likely to be diagnosed with ADHD. The landmark President’s Panel on Cancer report also urges consumers to eat organic based on the negative effects of pesticides.
Giving moms and dads even more reason to feel good about passing out Chocolate Treat Size Crispy Rice bars, 1 percent of sales will be donated to non-profit organizations that benefit habitat conservation, endangered species and youth education, like all EnviroKidz products. And, most importantly for the trick-or-treaters, kids love the chocolaty taste!
Chocolate Treat Size Crispy Rice bars are a seasonally available product.
