I used to send my kids to school with a granola bar everyday just so I would be sure they wouldn’t starve. The exact same granola bar. I’d extract it from the bottom of their lunch bags when it would become crushed beyond use and replace it with another one that would never be eaten either.
That was before I made my own. We eat these so fast that I’m lucky if there are any left for lunches.
