The original snack for low appetites

Senior Wellbeing

Here at Grandbar Snacks, we provide unique high calorie delicious, nutritious and easy-to-eat no-bake cake bars for the elderly. We are passionate about the wellbeing of our senior generation. Our range of bars ha a wide selection of natural ingredients to support elderly people by helping improve their dietary requirements. Nothing beats whole foods to improve the condition and overall health of anyone.

Our cake bars are created primarily for the elderly.  This is because low appetite and weight gain have been overlooked so far. The vast majority of bars in the shops are targeted at gym goers, weight loss or kids. Grandbars provide a natural snack that contributes to overall health and wellbeing.

Our Inspiration

We have a vast amount of experience in senior care through our sister company Dementia Doulas. We know that a lack of appetite and disinterest in food is often a part of the ageing process. Unfortunately there is a lack of tasty nutrient rich snacks tailored to the elderly.

This is exactly why Grandbar Snacks were born. Mary Merheim first came up with the idea in 2018 to support her own father (pictured). Finding a high calorie snack that he wanted to eat and was in some way nutritious was near impossible. She wanted to make something that, initially, appealed to the eye and taste buds! The fact they are packed with goodness makes them even better.

These bars were made for (and now in memory of) him.

They are all made with flaxseed, gluten-free oats, almond butter, walnuts, coconut oil, honey, apricots, and prunes.

Naturally Nutritious No-Bake Cake Bars

All our cake bars are made with natural ingredients including flaxseed, gluten-free oats, almond butter, walnuts, coconut oil, honey, apricots, and prunes. Ingredients that mix perfectly to support a healthy diet. These contain a range of vitamins and minerals that have many benefits to an elderly person’s overall wellbeing: –

  • Iron: produces haemoglobin, prevents anaemia, and increases energy.
  • Calcium: helps build and maintain healthy bones, and also lowers blood pressure.
  • Vitamin D: aids the absorption of calcium. May also protect against MS, Type 2 Diabetes, Cancer and Osteoporosis.
  • Magnesium: keeps the heart and immune system healthy and your bones strong.
  • Potassium: aids in cell function, reduces blood pressure and may reduce risk of kidney stones.
  • Vitamin B12: maintains nerve function, produces red blood cells and DNA.

Why are low appetites common in the elderly?

Our appetite naturally declines with our activity level, but the body still needs good nutrition to keep going and repair itself. Low appetites can also be caused by environmental issues, living alone, bereavement, loneliness and depression. All common in old age. Sometimes elderly people don’t have the energy to cook a ‘proper’ meal.

Our perception of taste and texture of food can change as we age. The meals we used to enjoy can become unpleasant to us. Also, if an elderly person is in a situation where they can’t control the menu, for example in a hospital, a care home or a hospice, the food may not be what they want to eat or be available when they are hungry.

Not eating enough easily becomes a habit and losing weight for the elderly can have many disastrous medical consequences.
