Americas: Healthier snacks for children


Arla Foods Ingredients has developed a suite of protein and calcium-rich snacking solutions for children.

The range has been benchmarked against existing snacks options to ensure they represent a superior option in terms of improved nutrition.

Among the solutions in the range is a delicious and easy-to-eat 35g dairy bar that offers as much calcium per serving as in one glass of milk.

It is 20% protein and low in calories.

Benchmarked against a typical chocolate bar, it contains one third less energy and, since more of the calories come from protein, energy release in the body is optimized.

This helps youngsters to feel fuller for longer than they would with confectionery, where more of the energy comes from sugars.

Other innovative application solutions in the new snacking range include a yoghurt bar, a healthier dessert, carbonized drinking yoghurt and a snack cake with less than 100 calories per serving.

The snacking application solutions have been launched under Arla Foods Ingredients’ Goodness of Dairy campaign.

This highlights how dairy ingredients are key to tapping into growing consumer demand for food that is natural, healthy and delivers great taste and texture.
