An option for kids to try is their CLIF Kid snack line, which offers CLIF Kid Zbar and CLIF Kid Zbar Cripsy. They are both uniquely designed for the nutritional needs of growing, active children and tastes great.

About Cliff Bar & Company
Clif Bar & Company started on a bike ride. Their founder, Gary, took a bite of yet another energy bar and thought to himself, “I can do better.” Two years later, CLIF Bar was launched and soon became the leading energy bar.
As much as they loved the original, many of the women here at Clif Bar & Company were in search of a bar more suited for them — something just as flavorful and satisfying, but smaller and with fewer calories. And, they wanted this bar to address their unique nutritional needs.
So they put their minds and taste buds to work to create something delicious and nutritious. In 1999 they launched LUNA. It was an immediate hit with active women who wanted something that tastes good and is good for them.
As a company they hold theirselves to not one, but five “bottom lines”:
Sustaining their business by creating long-term, sustainable goals and continuing to grow within their means
Sustaining their brands by making nutritious and delicious products, and never compromising on quality
Sustaining their planet by keeping their impact on the environment small, even as they grow
Sustaining their people by creating a workspace where people can thrive and find balance, even from 9-5
Sustaining their community by being good neighbors and giving back to the community in which they live
Today, a decade after the first LUNA bar, they are still spending a lot of time in the kitchen doting over the bars. But they feel even more nourished when they are doing the things they enjoy most, and giving back to the community. To see what keeps them inspired and connected with other women check out LUNAFEST, Team LUNA Chix, and their friends at the Breast Cancer Fund, and Healthy Child Healthy World.
They feel incredibly lucky to be able to work at a place like this. They hope you join them – even if it’s just by eating a bar or two!
