EAST HANOVER, N.J., Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kids today are constantly on the go, bouncing from school to glee club to soccer practice – which means parents need wholesome snacks with important nutrients – snacks that can provide nutritious fuel as kids prepare for their next adventure. Finding a snack with both the delicious taste kids want and other positives like protein and whole grain is as easy as picking up a box of Honey Maid Go Bites. Today, Honey Maid, part of the global snacking powerhouse Mondelez International, Inc., unveiled a mess-free snack both kids and parents can enjoy.
Honey Maid Go Bites Filled Snacks are crispy graham pockets filled with delicious ingredients kids can love together with 7g of whole grains and 5g of protein per 30g serving. In line with the full portfolio of Honey Maid's wholesome offerings, Go Bites Filled Snacks are made with whole grains and real honey, without high fructose corn syrup or artificial colors.
"Parents are looking for snacks that are easy and nutritious, while kids want snacks that taste great," said Tracey Benitz, Senior Brand Manager, Wholesome Kids, North America. "Our goal is to consistently provide families with delicious, wholesome and enjoyable snacks that both parents and kids can agree on, and Go Bites do just that – combining nutrients like protein with a delicious filling."
Go Bites delivers the dual benefits of protein to help support growth. Children rarely get the recommended amount of whole grains in their diets1. Go Bites also delivers whole grains that provide wholesome energy to help fuel active play.
