Abbott Launches NutriPals™ Fruit Bars With One Serving of Real Fruit in Every Bar


Research shows moms are looking for creative ways to get kids to eat more fruit

Columbus, Ohio.— For the many parents who have trouble getting their kids to eat enough fruit each day, Abbott has launched PediaSure® NutriPals™ Fruit Bars, the only kids’ snack bar made with one serving of real fruit in every bar.1

A recent study shows only 39 percent of moms believe their children are getting enough fruit in their diets. Additionally, moms are concerned that their children may not consume all the essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients they need each day. As a result, moms increasingly are seeking healthier snack options to help fill the gaps.2

NutriPals Fruit Bars are low-fat, healthy snacks with a delicious taste kids love, and they contain no high-fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, trans fat or preservatives. Each 150-calorie bar is a good source of protein, fiber and more than 20 vitamins and minerals. Additionally, a NutriPals Fruit Bar has nine times more fruit than a leading cereal bar.3

“For most parents, it’s a challenge to get your kids to eat the bananas or apples you pack in their lunch boxes,” said Jeff Boutelle, division vice president and general manager of pediatric products, Abbott Nutrition. “New NutriPals Fruit Bars are a convenient way to get more real fruit into their diets — and they taste great, so your kids won’t mind.”

PediaSure NutriPals Fruit Bars are now available in the baby/toddler aisle at most major retailers, alongside other NutriPals products. NutriPals Fruit Bars come in three delicious flavors — Strawberry, Mixed Berry and Blueberry — and the suggested retail price is $5.49 for a box of six bars.
