    STORY SUMMARY:

    Healthy eating is top-of-mind with many Canadians, especially since the
release of the new Canada's Food Guide earlier this year.
    Canada's Food Guide suggests that snacks can keep people energized and
provide important nutrients if chosen wisely.
    However, a recent Ipsos Reid survey reveals that while Canadians say they
are looking to supplement their diets with more wholesome foods, they don't
feel they're able to everyday. Canadians appear to want it all from their
snacks: nutrition, great-taste and convenience.
    Nature Valley has recently introduced FibreSource, a multi-nutritional
addition to its line of granola bars. This tasty snack contains 20 per cent of
the daily value of fibre, 300 mg of Omega-3, whole grains, as well as being
low in saturated fat with zero trans fat; all in a bar that has less than
130 calories per serving for consumers seeking more from their snacks.
