Dr Melina Bars
“I thought that the Dr Melina Bars were great,” says Shilpa Amin-Shah, MD, a mom of a son and two daughters and an emergency medicine physician at Emergency Medical Associates, in St. Johns, FL. The peanut butter one kept me full of energy and I was able to complete an hour long Zumba class. What I liked most about the bars was that they did not have that common “protein bar” after taste. I think they would be a great snack to bring to my Busy ER shift if I anticipate having to miss a meal to hold me over. Great product!”
“I have tried all the protein bars out there! I like them as an occasional snack, lunch supplement and post long run treat,” says Heather Lubell, MD, a mom of two sons and a pediatrician in private practice at Yardley Pediatrics of St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, in PA. “Some don’t taste good or give me a little bit of an upset stomach. But the Dr Melina Bars totally fit the bill! They are really tasty, good texture, and didn’t bother my stomach at all! I will definitely eat these again!”
“I thought the Dr Melina Bars were a nice option to other bars on the market, a good quick snack that’s low in fat and high in protein and fiber and offers some additional calcium and vitamin D which is so important,” says Sigrid Payne DaVeiga, MD, a mom of two children and a pediatric allergist with the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, in Philadelphia, PA.
