Protein powder for kids
It’s essential to make sure your kids are getting enough protein.
Protein helps your kids develop strong muscles, fulfill their nutritional intake and reduce the risk of obesity. It can also help improve focus and provide long-lasting energy to support their active lifestyles.
There are a few ways to make sure your kids are getting the protein they need. We might be a little biased, but our favourite is our strawberry-flavoured Healthy Nourished Kids protein powder.
Not only does it ensure your kids get the protein they need, we’ve been careful to avoid any of those common nasties that appear in run of the mill adult protein powders.
But we’ve found that getting kids to drink a protein shake can be tough, so we’ve come up with two fool-proof ways to give your kids the protein they need.
First? Protein milkshakes.
We’ve made our kids protein powder strawberry flavoured, so when you shake it up with milk, it tastes just like a strawberry milkshake. And what kid doesn’t love a good strawberry milkshake?
Our second, and new favourite, way of making sure our kids get the protein they need is through protein balls. Kids love protein balls, especially if they taste like a sweet treat.
We’ve tried a few protein ball recipes, but we’ve found a special favourite and included it below. Not only will your kids be getting the protein they need, you’ll be able to give them a healthy dessert they’ll love.
Give your kids the protein they need to help them live, learn, grow and play with our Healthy Nourished Kids protein powder.
Strawberry Kids Protein Balls
1 cup almonds
1/2 cup quick oats
2 scoops Healthy Nourished Kids protein powder
1/4 cup pitted Medjool dates
1/4 cup coconut water
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
- Place all ingredients into a food processor and run until a dough forms, adding more coconut water a tablespoon at a time as needed. The dough should stay together when you press it between your fingers.
- Scoop the dough into a tablespoon-sized ball and press it tightly to help it stay together. Continue until all of the dough has been rolled into balls.
- Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to one week.
