Granola bars are pretty much a school staple and with so many options out there, figuring out which one is best for your kid (or yourself) can be tricky. Do you just grab the grainiest one and assume it’s healthy? Do you grab the one with the chocolate because you know your kid’s going to love it? Do you really know what you’re looking for?

Don’t fret, you’ve got enough to worry about this time of year. So to make your life a little easier, we’ve done all the health research on the most popular brands of granola bars so you can see just what you’re buying. There’s a catch though: you’re not going to like what we found.

Allow us to explain. According to Insider research and analysis, a “healthy” granola bar would contain no more than 3g of sugar per serving, have 5g or less of fat, and have about 5g each of fibre and protein. Most of the granola bars we looked at don’t meet that criteria so we’ve given them grades to help you out when you’re cruising through the grocery store.

Because, healthy or not, sometimes a granola bar is the key to making your day just a little easier.
