The leaves are turning, the weather is cooling… it’s time for fall, which means it’s time for school to start again. For some parents, the school season is a breath of fresh air. For others, it can be a stressor—especially when it comes to handling your kids’ snacks and meals. Most cafeteria options aren’t nutritionally balanced, but prepping healthy meals every day is time-consuming and taxing on parents.
It’s all too easy to just throw a quick, sugary snack in your kids’ bags for the sake of convenience. But what if there was a snack that was easy, healthy, tasty, and kid-friendly?
The Solution: Plant Snacks
Our plant-based Tortilla Chips and Thins are healthy kids' snacks for school. Not only are they delicious, but they’re nutritious as well. They’re made of entirely plant-based ingredients: whole grain corn, cassava root, psyllium husk, pea protein, and mushroom powder. They’re naturally vegan, gluten-free, and nut-free—excellent balanced snacks for schools where food allergies are rampant. They also have three grams of protein and three grams of fiber for every serving!
But even though these chips and thins are healthy kids’ snacks, they’re also tasty. They aren’t dry or bland like other “healthy” snack alternatives on the market. We deliberately designed these to look, taste, and crunch like their favorite chip and cracker snacks. You could compare them to Doritos, Tostitos’ Tortilla Chips or Cheez-Its. We also offer them in a variety of flavors, from Nacho to Ranch to Cheddar! You could easily sneak one of these snacks into your kids’ lunch bags without them noticing the difference between Plant Snacks and their normal treats.
Why Plant Snacks?
Besides being healthy, there are many other qualities of our plant-based Tortilla Chips and Thins that make them ideal kids’ lunch ideas. Have you noticed that kids tend to gravitate towards crunchy snacks? There’s actually a significant amount of research that shows that kids, from toddlers to teens, prefer crunchy snacks.
Scientists think this is because crunchy snacks are consistent—every chip is the same, unlike fruit which can go bad or be not ripe enough. The sound of the crunch is also one of the most positive sensory feedback experiences you can have. Not to mention the texture and taste are unique from other foods. In short, crunchy foods feel good to kids!
In addition to having all sorts of healthy ingredients, Plant Snacks are also high in fiber. Did you know that fiber is one of the best nutrients because it keeps us full for longer? Because it takes longer to digest, fiber-full foods keep us satisfied long after we stop eating. Unlike candy bars or artificial sweeteners made to keep you snacking after you’re full, fiber will keep your kids full for hours so they don’t go hungry at school.
