Miyoko's Creamery created a vegan-friendly alternative to cheese sticks for kids that's described as "kinder to kids, cows and the planet." The lactose-free, allergy-friendly snacks for kids boast two grams of plant-based protein per serving, plus no added flavors. The alternative cheese snacks are prepared with the brand's own plant milk and a few unconventional ingredients like green tea extract, hemp seed butter and organic pineapple.
Miyoko’s Plant Milk Cheese Sticks are first launching as an online exclusive and they promise to be simple snacks for kids that will support days at home and school alike.
This new cheese alternative from the brand joins existing options in the form of wheels, spreads, shreds, blocks and slices in a variety of classic cheese-style flavors.
