Healthy snack ideas for kids

Kids love to snack, but their favorites aren’t always the healthiest choices. We came up with some plant-protein-packed versions of snack foods they’ll love to eat and make (with a little help from you).

1. Bagel Pizzas

This after-school classic is super versatile—start with a bagel base, and let everyone top their own. Simply slice bagels lengthwise, and have the kids spread on a light layer of marina sauce and top with their favorite shredded cheese. Sauté rehydrated Longève Unseasoned Plant-based Protein Crumbles in olive oil and Italian seasoning until golden brown, then sprinkle the “sausage” crumbles over the pizzas, along with any other desired toppings—we like bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, and sliced black olives. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 425°F for 5-10 minutes for a treat that’s better than any frozen pizza.

2. Panko vegetable fries

For a just-plain-fun take on French fries, have kids dust green beans or carrot sticks in flour, dip them in egg, and roll them in our gluten-free Panko Breadless crumbs. Bake at 300°F for 12-15 minutes for maximum crispiness. Don’t want to wing it? We also like this veggie fry recipe from Betty Crocker.

3. Cheeseburger cups

Kids will go crazy for this mini version of a fast food staple. This bite-size burger cup recipe from Taste of Home is quick, easy and fun to make. Simply switch out the ground beef for our Plant-based Protein Crumbles. Prepare the crumbles according to package directions, then add the rest of the recipe’s ingredients.

The thing we love most about these recipes is that they’re a surefire way to get you and the kids cooking together. How do you use Longève in your kid-friendly recipes?
