Hearty and versatile, each tofu bite is charged with an arsenal of health benefits. Tofu is a high quality protein and provides fiber, healthy fat, calcium, folic acid, and iron. Expand your child's palette (and maybe even your own) while helping them develop healthy eating patterns that will last a lifetime.
Parents, if your child has a sweet tooth, add a teaspoon of honey after cooking for more flavor. This small amount of sugar is worth the trade—it doesn't significantly increase the calories and encourages your child to eat beneficial protein.
