Ready®, one of America's fastest-growing active nutrition companies and the creator of the best-selling Ready® Clean Protein Bars, proudly announces the launch of its new Kids Whole Grain Protein Bars. The company, which includes leading athletes with global basketball star Giannis Antetokounmpo and football superstar Aaron Donald, continues its mission to Fuel the Family by bringing unique food and beverage innovations to the market – by introducing its latest functional snack tailored to the nutritional needs of children.

The Science and Nutrition team at Ready® identified an opportunity in the market among the many existing snack food options for kids that lack an optimal nutritional profile to specifically meet the needs of active children. Ready®’s Kids Whole Grain Protein Bars are packed with 6 grams of protein, 8 grams of whole grains, and 20% less sugar than other leading kids whole grain snack bars.
