This Chocolate Chip Oat Bar Slice Is Perfect For Busy Parents

My eldest son has just started his first year at our local school. In the lead up, we organised lots of things – uniform, school shoes, bag and his lunchbox.

He had a few requirements when it came to choosing his lunchbox. First, it had to be blue. Secondly, it had to have a drink bottle. And third, it had to have lots of compartments. We found a suitable one at a local department store. It was perfect – especially as one of his friends had the same lunchbox.

Every morning, he likes to inspect his lunchbox before he heads off to school – just to see what treats I have included for the day’s breaks.

This chocolate chip oat bar slice is a perfect lunchbox treat. The oats contain a slow releasing energy which means they will keep you feeling fuller for longer. They are also perfect for busy parents, because they are simply a one bowl slice which takes no time to mix together. You gotta love that!
