These delicious protein balls are so simple your kids will love making them and eating them. They make a great after school snack or a handy breakfast on the run. I put them in the kids’ lunch boxes for a quick morning snack after sports training on their way to class.
Protein is essential to support growth and development in children and good fats help with concentration and keep them feeling full longer.
