How to Cook Healthy Food for Kids : Extra Firm Broiled Tofu with Miso Jam to Increase Protein in Your Child's Diet

When Cassie and I first started giving Colin and Cailya solids, we found it challenging to incorporate protein into their diet. There was something about the chunky consistency of animal meat that they seemed to disdain. And then we introduced them to tofu; since then, tofu has become a stalwart staple in the Ko household.

Tofu is made by coagulating soy milk and pressing the resulting curds. It is high in protein and low in glycemic index. The consistency of tofu can range from very soft (Silken) to extra-firm, depending on how much water is pressed out. This makes tofu quite versatile as it can be found in appetizers, entrees, and even desserts.

Tofu has come to the rescue on meatless Mondays, potlucks with vegetarians and vegans, and on those cranky days when the kids won't seem to eat anything. Tofu saves the day yet again in the following movie trailer for "The Tofunator":

Here is the link to the recipe for broiled tofu with miso jam that I featured in the above clip:
