Kids, whether in school or online class need to have healthy and energizing snacks to keep up with the school work. This is the perfect time to whip up yummy and healthy snacks for your kids as they attend virtual school. 

Here are some tasty and affordable snack recipes that won the recently concluded Mekeni Cook and Care competition.

Lourdes Arceo created a delicious twist to Pinoy fave Tokwa't Baboy with her winning entry of TOKWA'T PICNIC HOTDOG

Mekeni Picnic Hotdog
Carrots (optional)

Soy sauce
Siling Labuyo (optional)

Cut tofu into cubes. Fry tofu and hotdog separately. Cut onions, carrots and celery into strips. Add all veggies as toppings on your fried tofu and hotdogs. For the sauce, mix all ingredients then drizzle it on top of the tofu, hotdog, and veggies!

Ghie Santiago Supnad created a Middle Eastern-ish treat that is just too mouthwatering to refuse- MEKENI PORK TOCINO KEBAB

Mekeni Pork Tocino
Bell Peppers

Slice all the ingredients into cubes. Skewer the Mekeni Pork Tocino and veggies into kebabs. Grill!

Darwin Vinuya used Picnic Hotdog in his PICNIC HOTDOG KIMBAP


Picnic Hotdog
Crab sticks
Sesame Oil
Sesame Seeds

Thinly slice all the Mekeni Picnic Hotdog, crab sticks, carrots, and egg before your stir-fry them separately. Placed the cooked rice into a mixing bowl then add 1/2 tbsp sesame oil and 1/4 tsp salt to season it. Mix well. Put the rice on the nori then spread it evenly. Fill the nori with the cooked ingredients. Roll and slice into pieces.

A yummy take on a very filling empanda is what Kimberly Garcia Sagmit prepared in her winning BUENO EMBOTIDO EMPANADA

For the dough:
2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1/4 Cup Water
1/2 Tsp. Baking Powder
Pinch of Salt 
1 Egg

For the filling:
Mekeni Bueno Embotido or Mekeni Chicken Longanisa


In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, and baking powder. Mix it well. Add egg and water. Mix again until well combined. Set aside and chill it for 30mins. Chop the Bueno Embotido and cook it for 5 minutes. Mix the cheese and set aside the filling. After chilling the dough, flatten it using a rolling pin. Make sure the surface is clean and dusted with all-purpose flour so it will not stick. Once you have achieved that flat circle, it is time to add the filling. Be sure to close the edges well. Heat the oil and fry.
