(NEWS CENTER) -- Some kids are already out of school for the summer, which means more meals need to be prepared at home. 

Chef Erin Dow offers a few high protein snack items that can replace meals for kids 13 and under.  She says it's important to strive to serve meals that have at least 10g of protein in them. 

Here are some examples Chef Dow recommends: 

    Kashi Go Lean Crunch hot cereal + skim milk 

    Edamame in individual bags you can heat up or eat cold

    100 calorie Greek yogurt with no artificial sweetener

    Chocolate muffin tops with 7g fiber and gluten free
