Hi, I'm Holly Mosier and I'm the author of Stress Less, Weight Less. Today, we're going to discuss what is a good source of protein to put in a kid's lunch, and I've got some great options here for you. You're going to start with boiled eggs. Kind of a classic. But in 70 calories, these have six grams of protein, and eggs have a particularly high quality of protein and it helps to keep them full. So I love to include a boiled egg. Next, low fat string cheese. Now you can use any string cheese, but the low fat versions cut the saturated fat and it's only 60 calories from one stick of cheese and it has eight grams of protein. Final one is my favorite though. I like to take Greek yogurt and I don't know if you're aware of this or not, but Greek yogurt has more than twice the protein content of regular yogurt. And if you get the vanilla flavored or the honey flavored it still tastes really good. This little cup of yogurt, in 120 calories has 12 grams of protein. That's huge. But I like to blend that with a protein bar. Now this is a Cliff bar. It has 240 calories and still has ten grams of protein. But you can use any protein bar. The most fun comes at the end. You have them dip the protein bar into the yogurt and eat it like that. So much fun, they're going to love it. So there you have it. Some ideas for a good source of protein to put in a kid's lunch.
