Wether you’re vegan, vegetarian, cutting down on meat intake or simply looking for ways to sneak extra nutrients into your little one’s diet, you need to give these delicious tofu nuggets a try.

What nutrients are we talking about?

Standard chicken nuggets can be a low-nutrient food choice, however there’s no denying it’s a favourite within many Australian households. Tofu nuggets with their OWN savoury yeast coating provide antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and quality protein (Think calcium, iron, selenium and a variety of B vitamins). You’re also getting a healthy dose of protein and fiber with almond meal and tofu.
