I’m all for quick and easy when it comes to dinnertime and with a couple of extra teenage boys in the house at the moment serve-yourself bars are the easiest way to feed them.

I like to keep things fairly simple with my food bars, but still give quite a few options, especially for picky eaters.  For example my little man loves wheat bread, but baby girl is going through a white bread only phase.  One of the teenagers can’t eat cheddar cheese so I wanted a few extra options for cheese he could eat, and I’m a lover of sweet potato fries, but am definitely in the minority being surrounded by lovers of regular potato fries.
