It's back to school time and it's one of the most exciting part of the year for the kids because they will see their classmates and friends again, wear their crisp uniforms, bring their new bags and also share what's in their lunch boxes.

It also means, it's time for parents to brace themselves and create a baon plan for their kids that's nutritious, easy to prepare, and of course delicious as well!  When creating a baon plan, I think of the food pyramid or the Go, Grow, and Glow chart which they study in their Science subjects.  You may find this amusing, but yes, I am always reminded that they need Go food for energy (Fats and Carbohydrates), Grow food to help them grow tall and strong (Protein), and Glow food to keep their bodies well (Multivitamins and minerals).  It's easy for me to think of what to give them based on their need.

My growing and energetic boys need a lot of Grow foods because they are into sports.  My eldest is a basketball varsity player and he really needs protein-rich food to help him with his muscle development and keep him growing taller and taller.  He needs to because of the sport he's into.  When you think of protein, you think of milk, cheese, yogurt, seafood, and meats, to name a few.  Now, let me share with you a protein-rich baon idea which they will surely love!


  • 2 pcs monay or pan de sal
  • 3 to 4 pcs vienna sausages
  • 2 pcs tomatoes, sliced
  • California Yanni Grilling Cheese (Jalapeno or Regular)

  1. Slice the buns and sausages into halves.
  2. Prepare sliced Yanni Grilling Cheese.
  3. Pan-fry or grill the ingredients.
  4. Put the grilled/pan-fried sausages, tomato slices and Grilling Cheese on top of the bun.  Enjoy!

Did you see how the Yanni Cheese formed a golden crust?  When eaten right away, biting it becomes a remarkable experience itself!  Why?  It's a bit crispy at the bite and gooey cheesy in your mouth.  I didn't put any spread anymore because it's already so tasty.  Putting spread is optional.  In this preparation, I used the one with Jalapeno which gave the sandwich a spicy kick.  For kids, use the regular grilling cheese.
Anything with cheese is LOVE right?  Think of macaroni, pizza, nachos, fries, omelette and many more!  But, when buying cheese in the market, make sure it's got the Real California Cheese or Milk Seal!  With this seal, I am assured that I am getting a top quality brand compared to the many dairy products that are available in stores right now.  It also means the product is certified as having been made with 100% Real California Milk from Real California Dairy families.  
You may ask why California?   California is US' leading producer of milk, ice cream, butter, nonfat dry milk and whey protein concentrate and is the second largest producer of cheese and yogurt.  The Golden State is America’s leading milk producer with 1,300 dairy farms, 99% of which are family-owned. These California dairy farm families take precious care of their cows and their products.
