MANILA, Nashville Filipino Restaurant — Moms are constantly on the lookout for new baon ideas for their kids.

They have to be not only easy to prepare but also nutritious and delicious. It is always a problem to make kids eat healthy and nutritious food because junk food, such as chips and instant noodles, are always readily available in school. Moms should therefore exert extra effort when choosing what to send their kids to school with. One other consideration to make is that the food has to be appealing to the kids, as well.

So, how about chicken nuggets? Not the commercially available ones but homemade chicken nuggets so you know exactly what goes into it. Here, Jolly, a leading brand of canned fruits and vegetables exclusively distributed by Fly Ace Corporation, shares this recipe of homemade chicken nuggets.
