Snacking Made Easy with Maple Leaf #Protinis w/Giveaway

Are you looking for a convenient healthy snacking option that tastes great?

We are a household of snackers, even the toddler! However, I’m always looking for healthy snacks for our tween and teen daughters because frankly I wonder how many times can one eat waffles or cereal in a day? Seriously!

We’re not the only family who loves to snack, check out this very interesting information about Canadians and their snacking habits.

The biggest feature for when looking for healthy snack options for our family is ensuring they are getting the complete protein they need and the second feature is definitely convenience, especially in a ridiculously busy household.

A few questions go through my mind when I’m grocery shopping for snacks:

  1. Is the snack a healthy option?
  2. Does the snack require heat or can it be eaten straight out of the fridge?
  3. Is the snack in reasonably portable packaging?
  4. Does the snack have a variety of flavours to satisfy the crazy pickiness of the kiddies?

After assessment, Maple Leaf® Natural Selections® PROTINIS™ are one perfectly packaged source of complete protein for my family. They are a great addition to our existing snack repertoire!

PROTINIS™ snacks are available in eight flavours including Oven Roasted Chicken, Sweet Thai Chili Chicken, Mild Salsa Chicken, Honey Garlic Chicken, Oven Roasted Chicken and Cranberry, Oven Roasted Chicken and Superfruit, Oven Roasted Chicken and Mango, and Oven Roasted Chicken and Apple. They are available at major grocery stores across Canada and retail for approximately $4.99. Each retail pack comes with two PROTINIS™ snacks.

Why is complete protein important for me and my family? Registered dietitian and nutrition expert Sue Mah explains why:

I recently picked up the Sweet Thai Chili Chicken and the Honey Garlic Chicken, both were very tasty!

The Sweet Thai Chili Chicken was a hit according to the teen! She chose to warm up her Protinis with some leftover rice.
