The Real Skinny On Energy Bars

Do you know what to look for in an energy bar, or are you just buying a high-priced candy bar?

  • No more than 100% of the recommended daily allowance of nutrients
  • At least 3 grams of high fiber
  • Less than 3 grams of low saturated fat
  • Moderate sugar—18 grams or less
  • No trans fats or hydrogenated oils


A truly healthy snack bar should contain no added sugar, oil or artificial ingredients. Look for energy bars containing only whole food ingredients that include fruits, nuts and whole grains. The right energy bar is a great fit for LE pros.

Stay Safe, Brothers and Sisters!
