“It makes a great snack, not only because it’s energizing, but also because it tastes great!” says Cecily, Social and Wellness Prefect, taking a bite of Branksome’s new SuperFood Bar.

Who knew a snack could be so nutritious and delicious! The shelves in the Athletics and Wellness Centre dining hall are stocked with our new and highly popular Branksome SuperFood Bar.

“It has really become a staple for most students in the school and a unique solution to students needing a healthy snack that they enjoy eating,” says Cecily.

The exciting new snack bar embodies one of Branksome’s core values—wellness. The bar was designed with the Branksome student in mind and promotes the making of healthy choices.

“We knew it had to have three high protein ingredients—quinoa, chia seeds and hemp seeds,” said Julie Trudeau, Aramark Food Service Director. “And dark chocolate chips to make it delicious.” The 170-calorie bar also includes whole grain rolled oats, dried cranberries and coconut.

The idea to have our own granola bar took off and Branksome partnered with Sweets from the Earth, a Toronto-based bakery specializing in all-natural vegan baked goods, to perfect the bar. The bakery continuously has been kept busy producing fresh batches of the bar for the students.

“For me personally, it has replaced most other energy bars because I know exactly what’s in it and where it’s coming from, so I feel much more comfortable purchasing it,” adds Cecily.

The popular new treat launched in September and since then students have been eating them up.

Happy snacking!
