Since taking a different approach to my nutritional health this year, I have put a strong focus on the amount of protein that I take in at every meal. Snacks are often challenging for me because in the past, my snacks often contained a strong emphasis on carbohydrates. I’m so excited to hear that Maple Leaf Foods have caught on to the snacking trend and are offering a new alternative.
Maple Leaf® Natural Selections® PROTINIS™ make a protein rich healthy snack for the whole family!
Maple Leaf® Natural Selections® PROTINIS are made with moist, delicious, oven-roasted seasoned chicken and dried fruit and are a source of complete protein.
I appreciate the fact that the fruit is in a separate, sectioned off container in order to retain its freshness and unique taste. The apples, for example, remain fully crispy which is something that my children both enjoy! In fact, last week, I found myself frantically putting together a dinner for the car for my daughter as she had to eat between her theatre school and a regular school spring concert. Protinis was the PERFECT quick addition to her dinner, jam pack filled with protein and much healthier than other drive through options that might have been available to us.
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.
PROTINIS™ snacks are available in eight flavours including:
- Oven Roasted Chicken
- Sweet Thai Chili Chicken
- Mild Salsa Chicken
- Honey Garlic Chicken
- Oven Roasted Chicken and Cranberry
- Oven Roasted Chicken and Superfruit
- Oven Roasted Chicken and Mango
- Oven Roasted Chicken and Apple
They are available at major grocery stores across Canada and retail for approximately $4.99. Each retail pack comes with two protein rich health snack PROTINIS™ portions.
