Opening of classes is forthcoming and meticulous parents’ dilemma after tuition fees, books and uniforms are far from over, for their next major concern is to assure that children’s every day baon are tasty and nutritious.
With Soyami Soya Chips, the country’s first real soya-based snack produced without trans-fat and monosodium glutamate, mothers and guardians now have the perfect healthy baon-snack alternative to the usual fruits and sandwiches.
“Although our children have prepared snacks and food during their recess or lunch breaks, we cannot guarantee they won’t buy or share with their classmates’ bag of junk food,” explains Apple Morales, President and owner of AM Global Works Marketing Corp., the manufacturer of Soyami Soya Chips.
She continues, “So instead of reprimanding them for eating the crunch-and-munch food they love, why not give them the same snack feel that is low in calorie count and sugar and is an excellent source of protein and fiber?”
Why soya? According to factoids.com, the yield of protein from soybeans is about twice that of meat, 12 times that of milk and four times that of eggs.
In addition, soy is also crucial for healthy brain cells. The brain which is formed by 20 percent phospholipids or more specifically lecithin is one of the substances found in soy. Therefore, including soy in kids’ diet generally contributes to better learning capabilities, brain performance and vitality while enhancing brain memory.
Since soy has the most abundant properties of calcium and iron compared with other legumes, it can contribute in building healthy bones while producing hemoglobin or red blood cells needed for transporting oxygen in the body, a benefit that befits active and growing children.
On the other hand, for children who are computer and television addicts, Soyami Soya Chips may be an option to replace potato chips. Soy prevents child obesity because it is low in carbohydrates and it makes one feel fuller for a longer period of time.
