Snack bars are the future of snacking. Liquid breakfasts are not catching on with consumers as an alternative to cereal-based breakfast options, says Euromonitor International. Do you eat breakfast? Running low on healthy snack options? US breakfast and snack habits are changing, with Americans moving away from breakfast cereals and towards nutritional and cereal bars offering food engineers an ‘efficient platform’, says Packaged Facts.
From 2004 to 2014 the number of Americans eating cereal bars increased over 50%, and the number of consumers eating granola bars rose 33%, according to Packaged Facts. This leaves a window for gluten-free shoppers to find options outside of the granola-fuelled snack bar market. Toosum oatmeal bars offer a 100-calorie gluten-free oatmeal bar option for consumers.
Americans are also starting to defect from three square meals a day to six small meals and snacks a day. Eating snacks instead of 3 large meals keeps your metabolism working and reduces the likelihood of over eating. According to the American Dietetic Association, whether you are eating three or six meals a day, weight loss is a function of what, and how much, you eat. Your weight is still determined by the number of calories you consume minus the number of calories you expend. Try a Toosum 100-calorie gluten-free oatmeal bar to keep the excess calories and gluten away from reaching your diet goals.

We know you’re careful about what you eat at meal times—lots of veggies, healthy protein, complex carbs. But snack time can be tricky because many “healthy” snack bars out there are loaded with sugar and calories or packed with preservatives and other ingredients concocted in a lab, not a kitchen.
