Er, id have thought it will make them aweful fat!! I suggest keep them to yourself! they should not be eating anything but a natural diet at their age! Keep them healthy!

Ye...its VERY high cal food, far to high for children that age. And if there is protien powder in it then its a definate no no imo!

I would say the only problem with this is that your kids might start thinking "ohhh, dad says those candy bars are ok to eat... now I'll eat a candy bar whenever I want!"

Just make sure they eat their breakfast and get some veggies at dinner... a bar here or there couldn't hurt, but it's more sensible to have them eating "real" food in the meantime, IMHO.
