NEW YORK, Aug. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The first day of school is right around the corner, and award-winning Muuna cottage cheese wants to make parents’ lives easier with a nutritious and delicious snack from parent and students alike. This season, prepare protein-packed school lunches and snacks, or stock up your college student’s mini-fridge, with unique, melt-in-your-mouth creamy cottage cheese available in multi-serve containers, and a wide range of convenient single-serve cups paired with real pieces of fruit.
Muuna®’s line of eight deliciously nutritious, single-serve flavors with real pieces of fruit are a perfect grab-and-go breakfast, lunch or high-protein snack the whole family will enjoy. Available in strawberry, blueberry, vanilla, peach, pineapple, mango, raspberry and black cherry, each single-serve cup contains 15 grams of protein, only nine grams of sugar, plus calcium, vitamins A & C, potassium and probiotics. Muuna single-serve is also available in a lowfat plain flavor containing 19 grams of protein.
“We are seeing more and more parents make healthy ingredient choices for themselves and their children, such as swapping cottage cheese for less nutritionally balanced choices, and we hope to see this trend continue during the school year,” said Gerard Meyer, CEO of Muuna. “Beyond our rich and creamy texture and great taste, we have worked to reimagine cottage cheese by making it portable and adding nutritionally beneficial and delicious elements across all our offerings.”
A healthy treat for all ages, parents, college students and kids can also reap the nutritional benefits of cottage cheese in their favorite dishes for back-to-school by adding savory Classic or Lowfat Plain Muuna cottage cheese to a variety of recipes, giving dishes a protein and calcium boost. Rich and creamy plain Muuna varieties contain an incredible 14 grams of complete protein in each 4-ounce serving, to keep you fuller longer during the school day. Try these protein-boosting recipe options ahead of the season:
Everyone in the family will enjoy these bite-sized Protein Packed Chicken Pinwheels. Mayonnaise contains little to no protein. By using Lowfat Plain Muuna cottage cheese instead, you can keep the creaminess, add protein and calcium, and pack a delicious school lunch.
