Granola bars: Oats have enjoyed the limelight as a healthful component in many diets. The marketing logic is that granola bars also confer these same benefits. But if you look closely at the nutrition label you’ll notice that most contain a substantial amount of sugar (including high-fructose corn syrup) as well as industrially produced oils, synthetic additives and flavors. Look for bars made from fruits and nuts with as few ingredients as possible, such as Larabars or Clif’s C bars.
