Okay, so those prenatals aren’t always all they’re cracked up to be. I really like the brand I buy from Wild Oats as they don’t make me nauseated but they sure don’t taste that great, even when on the tongue for only a split second. And I’m not one that loads up on the healthy food groups when pregnant, unless you consider a Big Mac and fries a basic food group. So what’s a girl like me to do when it comes snack time and she’s already had one too many Oreos? She reaches for an Oh Mama! bar, a new award-winning nutrition bar designed specially for moms in all stages, from trying to conceive to nursing.
Created by a mother of three with a Masters of Health Science in Health Policy and Management from John Hopkins University and a ton of experience in maternal and child health, Oh Mama! bars are all natural and made to complement your prenatal vitamins without running the risk of over supplementing. They are also the only nutrition bars fortified with DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid that is critical for babies’ brain, eye, and central nervous system development. Oh Mama! bars “provide the correct amounts of vitamins and minerals most difficult to get in a normal diet and most important to the health of both mother and child.” But how do they taste?
Oh Mama! bars come in three flavors: Chocolate Peanut Butter, Frosted White Raspberry, and Frosted White Lemon, and I received a sample of each. Though I have yet to taste the chocolate peanut butter I was able to snack on the white raspberry and passed along the white lemon to a girlfriend for her feedback. Though not as tasty as a half package of Oreos or, say, a king size Butterfinger bar, they are a tasty alternative to the junk food I usually consume during those nine months of cravings. And I love knowing I’m not over supplementing, which I could easily do by eating a nutrition bar packed with far too many vitamins when combined with what’s in my prenatals. At about $2 a bar, they aren’t much more than your typical nutrition bar but it’s worth it for a bar designed especially with a woman’s health in mind. —Emily
