Energy bars: 'Don't make them a habit'


Sally Rhodes, nutritionist with the Hunt Regional Medical Center, discusses the value of energy bars, which she says are good for an occasional meal replacement, but not on an everyday basis.  She says they tend to have too much sugar.  She's much more critical of energy drinks, which she says have much too much sugar and caffeine.  She recommends sweet tea or coffee as an alternative to energy drinks, and fruit, nuts, peanut butter and string cheese as alternatives to the energy bars.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
