Let's Talk Soy Protein and Children and a Giveaway

With so many poor food choices available to our children this holiday season, it's nice to see some healthier options that they'll actually eat.  

We've long been fans of MorningStar Farms products and have incorporated them into our "Meatless Mondays".  It's something I started a few years ago when hubby's cholesterol began to rise.  It was a simple change but one we've come to embrace.  MorningStar Farms offers a wide variety of TASTY Meatless Monday options sure to win over the pickiest eaters.  Products packed full of protein which is crucial for optimal nutritional health.
My kids really like MorningStar Farms Chik'n Nuggets and Hubby and I never pass up a wrap or sandwich made with MorningStar Farms Chik Patties and fresh green leaf lettuce.  Great taste and less fat than some of the other chicken nugget and patty offerings at our local grocer.  MorningStar Farms Sausage Links and Patties are the secret to my sausage and rigatoni recipe revamp.  I just switched out the heavy fat pork for healthier MorningStar Farms Sausage and my family is treated to a meal packed with protein.  I just may share this recipe in an upcoming post.

For those of you who may not be in the know about soy protein, allow me to enlighten you:
· Soy protein is a high‐quality, plant‐based protein derived from soybeans
· Soy protein supports healthy growth and development
· Because of its ability to impact satiety, soy protein can help in managing a healthy weight in children
· Soy protein is a healthy alternative for children with milk, egg or peanut allergies
· Incorporating high-quality proteins, such as soy protein, into children’s diets supports immune health

In addition to a coupon for a free MorningStar Farms product, I also received samples of Nogii Kids and A3 bars and a cute, little thermal tote.

I'm ALWAYS looking for healthy snacks for my kids so being able to sample A3 bars and Nogii kids bars was a welcome opportunity to try something totally new.  To assist with this review, I recruited the middle of Los Tres Amigos for this review as he is the foodie of the group.

The Nogii Kids bars com in a clear package so my kid could see ALL of the bar's goodness.  By "goodness" I mean chocolate chips.  My son said it looked like a "chocolate chip rice krispy treat".  He really liked it.

My Thoughts:  The NoGii Bar was very dense but quite tasty.  Tons of semi-sweet chocolate chips and just the right amount of amount of sweet for my liking.  Had to check out the packaging and was glad to see NoGii Bars contains absolutely no high fructose corn syrup.  None.  Zilch.  Nada.  

Nogii Kids Bars are healthy, gluten-free, and packed with protein.  

Next up was the A3 Honey Graham S'Mores bar. One bite left me trying to figure out why I've never had these before.  OMG!  This was absolutely delicious!  My generous child was a little reluctant to share once we opened the package. Seriously, the sweet smell of honey graham and chocolate just oozes from the package.  

A3 Honey Graham S'Mores bars are packed full of goodness plus they are also:
  • Low in fat
  • High in protein
  • Gluten free
  • Zero cholesterol
  • Low in sodium
  • Full of ingredients I can pronounce
  • Did I mention DELICIOUS!!!
