As a vegan and diabetic, Dr. Snyder discovered it impossible to find a nutritional bar for herself, her family, and patients not packed with salt and excessive calories, formulated specifically for women, and made of whole foods – so she created Mood Bars. With the recent launch of the bars, Dr. Snyder is thrilled to share her bars with the world.
