The “happy nuggets” are not your conventional fast food version as Alpha Food’s nuggets are free of cholesterol and trans-fat but with comparable protein content to the real ones. Befriend veggies by making a low-sodium and low-fat dipping sauce with green peas and vegan cheddar cheese, this helps kids to consume a serving of vegetables at the same time unknowingly! Sweet bite-sized cocoa energy ball also makes an irresistible treat.
