“Near the forfront of the next generation of parenting tools...Red Tricycle is not your mother's parenting aide. Readers are razr-phone-toting, book-club-joining moms who at least know what a blackberry is."

Seattle Post Intelligencer April 2006

Super Power

Most of us rely on an arsenal of weapons to help us succeed in our role as SuperMom. Need a date night with the hubby? Zip! Got the sitter on speed dial. Battling germs and infection? Bam! Knock it out with hand sanitizer. Fighting the forces of sugar and empty calories? Zing! As in, Zing Nutrition Bar.

Created by four Bastyr-trained nutritionists, Zing Bars pack a double punch: great taste and good-for-you ingredients. After trying (and failing) to find a healthy, flavorful nutrition bar to recommend to patients, the fab four of health-foodies set to work developing their own wholesome snack.

The result? An energy-boosting bite — each serving contains 10 to 13 grams of protein to bump brain power — that runs laps around sugary alternatives in taste and sweet temptation. What's more, Zing Bars are 100% natural and free of wheat and soy protein. Two of the 3 flavors are also gluten-free. And, as if that weren't enough, the bars forgo both trans fats and synthetic vitamins, making them a nutritious choice for the whole family. In three yummy flavors: Blueberry Almond (gluten-free), Oatmeal Chocolate Chip (wheat-free), and Peanut Butter Chocolate (gluten-free).
