LIVINGSTON, Calif. – Foster Farms has created an alternative to the traditional corn dog it hopes will be a hit with kids, parents and schools. The company recently released a whole grain, lower-fat, lower-sodium chicken corn dog for foodservice.

The new corn dogs provide a full serving of whole grain, 47 percent less fat, further reduced sodium, higher fiber, zero trans fat and fewer calories, according to the company.

"We are filling the lunchtime need with a happy medium," said Greta Janz, Foster Farms vice president of frozen and prepared foods. "With the added nutritional value of whole grains, lower fat of chicken corn dogs and now, further reduced sodium levels, we're able to offer a school lunch solution that satisfies kids' taste and parents' desire for healthier choices."
