I'm all for better kids' nutrition, but I'm not sure this shake goes far enough. One package is 200 calories, 7 grams of fat, and 8 grams of protein, but does have 13 grams of sugars. Yes they've added between 10 and 40% RDA of a bunch of vitamins, but I'm not sure moms will appreciate the extra boost from the vitamins B6 and B12. The taste is good and not too sweet, but I have to wonder what exactly 'organic nutrition to support an uneven diet' actually means.

I added this combination of brown rice, black pepper extract and turmeric to plain cottage cheese so that nothing would take away from the 'world famous' black pepper flavor and I was disappointed. The brown rice cuts the pepper to where it was quite bland. To be fair, on the label it's more about helping digestion and increasing nutrient absorption than about adding flavor. However, it would be helpful if on the label they explained more about the digestive health benefits so we know they are "real."

This is actually a terrific recipe to get non tofu eaters to eat tofu. Marinaded with cane sugar, soy sauce, natural flavors and spices, it has a very mild flavor, but masks the plain tofu taste that some people don't like. We microwaved it for 45 seconds and it came out firm and perfect. One piece, which is 2 ounces is 4 1/2 grams of fat and 8 grams of protein.

If you like sweet tea, you'll love how convenient this one is. Black tea combined with Splenda which is already in the tea bag. All you have to do is brew the hot water and let it steep. This is definitely for people who have a sweet tooth. How does it taste? More like Splenda which actually overpowers the taste of the tea itself.

This is one of the best granolas I've ever had - crunchy, loaded with nuts, raisins and sugars - and the last is the down fall. 14 grams of sugars in a half a cup, 8 grams of fat and 4 grams of protein. Many of the ingredients, actually 42%, except for the whole grain oat flakes, are Fair Trade. Delicious, indulgent, but certainly not as low in sugars that many look for in granola.
