Being a Nutritionist I feel a snack break is very important when it comes to healthy meal patterns, many times people skip their snacks due to the unavailability of healthy options which increases hunger pangs and stomach discomfort.
While working with several patients, I realized there is a need for healthy nutritional snack options, which not only cater to the nutritional needs but can be customized for a specific nutritional requirement at the same time which is delicious too.
While working with maternity hospitals, I realized that maternal nutrition is essential to achieve a healthy and happy pregnancy outcome. Additionally, post-pregnancy nutrition is equally important for lactating mothers, especially working mothers who have insufficient milk output due to stress and irregular eating habits and this might lead to some disorders like diabetes, obesity, cardiac disorders, and poor lactation while interacting with obesity & diabetic patients, I observed that meal sequence and pattern is very important.
So to address these gaps and introduce a healthy nutritious snack option, I decided to create “The Macros Bar” a premium health bar that is exclusively handcrafted by a Nutritionist.

The Macros Bar’ is a small compact bar, a powerhouse of essential micronutrients and trace elements. It is very handy as a pre & post-workout routine and a snack on the go to me personally, sometimes my emergency meal. It caters to most of the nutritional demands and tastes fabulous. Very thoughtfully chosen the finest ingredients, mixed with a precise quantity to provide balanced nutrition without a compromise in the taste. When I got it customized with prunes and garden cess seeds added, I was in love with it

In today’s busy schedule, it fits in as a perfect quick snack. It's a pretty good alternative to chocolates which is not only delicious but also contains healthy nutrients at the same time whilst satisfying the craving and filling the stomach. I would certainly recommend it as a healthy snack. It is portable and can be easily consumed while on the go either by Bus or Metro. It’s a good product for a Healthy Life

As I pregnant and was filling frequently hungry, I tried The Macros Bar with small pack initially as it is handmade by Nutritionist. Specially figs base and I loved them. It has great nutrients, the bars are keeping me satiated in terms of sweet cravings. The packaging is really nice with all the information given inside. A big Thumbs Up!
I actually loved both combinations. Normally I might have one individual component at one go but in Macros Bar I could taste and enjoy every component at one go. Thank you very much!

We loved The Macros Bar! Both dates base with chocolate and fig base variants. It tasted great and I would say it's the ideal snack for adults and kids too. I am going to have one everyday as my tea time snack! My kid just loved it. He kept asking for more🙂

I ordered this through Amazon.The macros bar tastes good and packed with healthy ingredients .An ideal healthy snack to munch on for kids, busy college ,office goers and those travelling as it comes handy. Since there are no preservatives , artificial colour or chemicals and developed by a nutritionist its all the more desirable.

I like the fig bars more.. sheer preference.. its nice and wholesome.. The packaging also well done so is the branding, all the best Sonali !! great start.
Among Macros Bar the fig is definitely yummy, we (all family member) loved the chocolate too, specially loved the chocolate swirl on the bar.
Really enjoyed the Macros Bars. They are rich in fibre but have a very rich taste, unlike some other bars which tend to be tasteless and dry. Very filling and nutritious. I will definitely recommend Macros Bar as a very good Breakfast option.

I don’t really like dates but when I tasted the dates and chocolate bar I loved the combination of Dates, Walnuts and chocolate. It’s very yummy, chocolaty and fudgy. This is my go to evening snack, it is very filling and gives me energy! -Eesha Shintre
Macrobars makes for a tasty and nutritious snack for kids and adults alike - easy to carry and eat on the go. The part we like best is that it has all natural ingredients including sweeteners plus zero preservatives...
I am an IT professional. I have extremely busy mornings which gives no time to have a proper breakfast most of the times. Sonali introduced me to her flagship product, The Macors bar and I immediately fell in love with it. It is good in taste, full of required nutrients and adequate amount to fill up. I specially like the Fig variant but have tried others too and they are equally good. I wish Sonali very best and success.
