Kids are super busy these days and while I encourage whole foods first, often it’s extremely difficult to manage in the time between school and activities. As a mom and nutritional therapy practitioner, the reason I love HEROFUEL so much is that it’s very convenient and most importantly, it’s made with minimally processed, quality whole foods (plus it tastes great!).

Our children need proper nutrition to fuel their bodies, to learn new skills, stay sharp, and perform well. HEROFUEL features three major components of a child’s nutrition- complex carbohydrates, fiber, and protein. Today, I want to highlight protein.

Proteins are the building blocks of the body and are a key component to a healthy, well-balanced snack. HEROFUEL provides an excellent source of protein to nourish your child’s body.

Let’s dive a little deeper...

Protein is necessary for:

  • optimal growth
  • muscle building and repair
  • fighting infections
  • skin, hair and other tissue growth and repair
  • enzymes and hormones needed for digestion and metabolism
  • neurotransmitters, chemical messengers particularly important to brain health
  • forming red blood cells that carry oxygen
  • and the list goes on...

Adequate protein helps support a strong immune system, stable moods, agility, muscle strength, performance, recovery (including better sleep), and focus and attention. HEROFUEL’s main source of protein is whey protein isolate. The whey protein isolate used in HEROFUEL is fantastic. How can Whey Protein Isolate be so wonderful, you ask? The protein used:

  • gluten free
  • non-GMO
  • BSE/TSE Free (no added hormones)
  • no lactose
  • no sugar
  • no fillers or hidden ingredients
  • Certified Kosher Dairy
Food quality matters! I can’t stress this enough. I’ve seen tremendous improvement in every aspect of a child’s life when this becomes a priority. My advice to you, nourish their growing bodies and brains the best way possible - with real whole foods and well-balance healthy snacks like HEROFUEL.
