Soy Protein Snack Bars & Veggie Burgers Review + Prize Pack Giveaway

You’ve bought school supplies, sharpened pencils, and packed backpacks. Now that you’ve started the school year with all the right tools, it’s time to think about supplying your kids with great nutrition too! Soy protein helps support healthy growth and development while fighting against childhood obesity. Additionally, incorporating high-quality proteins, such as soy protein, into children’s diets supports their immune systems.

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.

I have a 4 1/2 year old grand daughter who eats pretty healthy here at home. However, some of the things they serve to the kids at her preschool concern me...especially some of the snacks and beverages. Because of this, I have gotten into the habit of packing most of her lunches and her snacks for school.

The company sent me several products to try out for all of you. For the purpose of this review, I made the Princess share all of her goodies with me, so that I could adequately write about them. Here is what we received for the review.

1. Hasselbeck's Nogii Kids Bar in the chocolate chip flavor. This bar contains no gluten, no nuts, no dairy and is all natural. These bars are packed with yummy goodness and are a great source of fiber and Omega 3's. Each 1.39 oz. bar contains 150 calories with 40 fat calories. These are chewy and not rock hard like other brands we have tried in the past. They are also very appealing to look at too! Regarding taste, we loved them! They had a great chewy texture and with the addition of the chocolate they were slightly sweet but not overly sweet. Definitely a great alternative to an unhealthy chocolate candy bar!

2. A3 Honey Graham Smore's Bar is another great choice! This bar is made with Manuka honey which gives it that sweet taste that we all love and crave. Each 1 oz. bar contains 110 calories with 30 fat calories. These snacks are gluten free but they are made with soy & egg if you have any allergies to those. This bar also had a great flavor to it with a chewy texture. While we both really enjoyed sharing this bar...we did enjoy the first one better. Just remember, we all have different taste buds!
Morning Star Farms Veggie Burgers
3. Morning Star Farms Grillers Original Veggie Burgers were absolutely fantastic! We have never tried veggie burgers before and I have to say this...we were really missing out! Each veggie burger contains 57% less fat than a ground beef burger. These are great for those who are watching their weight or for people like me who want healthier choices. Each veggie burger contains 130 calories and is an excellent source of protein. The box came with 4 burgers and instructions to either make them in the microwave, skillet, oven or toss them onto the grill. We chose to do them in a skillet and it only took about 8 to 10 minutes over medium heat and they were done. Everyone enjoyed the except for my 29 year old daughter. With that said, the rest of us would indeed eat them again. Matter of fact, they are on my grocery list for the next time I hit the store.

Even if you don't want to go completely onto a more healthier diet...you can make small substitutions with the three products that I got to review. Toss out those bags of chips and candy bars and substitute those with the A3 and Nogii Kids Bars. The Morning Star Farms Veggie Burgers is something the entire family can enjoy. We give all three of these products a big two-thumbs up!
