As a busy mom of two I am always looking for healthy quick and easy snacks and light meals for on the go. Whether it is running out the door to soccer in the summer, running from work to pick up the kids or even a day blogging. Grab and go portioned snack and meals are great.
We recently tried the new Maple Leaf PROTINIS snacks. These little packs are made with delicious oven-roasted seasoned chicken and dried fruit and are a source of complete protein. They are just the right size for my daughter for lunch also as she isn't a big fan of bread.
According to a Harris Decima survey, more than half (52 per cent) of Canadians snack at least twice a day, 71 per cent are seeking healthier snacking options and 85 per cent of Canadians prefer a snack that leaves them feeling fuller, longer.

Why is complete Protein important? According to Sue Mah, registered dietitian and nutrition expert, "Complete protein contains all of the essential amino acids your body needs and cannot produce on its own," Some examples of foods with complete protein are milk, eggs, fish, meat and poultry, like the oven-roasted chicken bites in PROTINIS™. This type of protein helps slow down the digestion of food, keeping you feeling fuller, longer, and protein snacking can support physical activity and weight management goals by building and repairing muscles and tissues."
