Hi there, I’m Aleh, 40 year old father of 3 boys (they're 10, 12 and 15).
Looking at my kids, I see that they have less play-time outdoors than I did at their age.
Kids spend most of their time playing on their smartphones, ipads, laptops and snacking. Snacking all the time…
From studies about the microbiome, we know that fiber and plant protein can help prevent diet-related diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes and heart disease, but kids… they don’t like food that looks healthy. When Michelle Obama tried to bring fruits and vegetables to schools, 60% was left untouched.

Fiber and Protein in the Top 20 Most Purchased Snacks
PLANETARIANS Chief Mixologist, Anastasia Tkacheva helped me make a table with the protein and fiber content in the most popular snacks today. Which one has the most protein? Which one has the most fiber? Which one has both?
Want to see how protein and fiber snacks make you feel? Challenge yourself!
1. Choose any 3 snacks.
2. Make sure that they total:
- 25g (for women), 38g (for men) of fiber
- 46g (for women), 56g (for men) of plant protein
- 100-250 calories per snack
3. Have these 3 snacks between meals within a day (meals do not matter).
4. Let us know in the comments to this post if you feel better the next day.
If you notice you feel better when you're getting lots of plant-based protein and fiber, then consider supporting PLANETARIANS efforts to make the ultimate snack to fight obesity. Our sunflower chips have more fiber than a serving of many veggies, and more protein by weight than meat!
