Protein-Powered Snacks

Main dishes aren’t the only way for kids to get protein. After school snacks are a great opportunity too.

Our edamame dip serves up 4 grams of protein per 3 tablespoons and encourages your child to eat their veggies. Offer up a colorful assortment of bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, sliced jicama, sugar snap peas, and carrots, and watch them disappear!
