Especially for parents, having sensible snacks available is a no-brainer. And if those snacks can provide some legit nutrition, well that’s a big bonus. At our house, cereal reigns supreme--favored over all other crunchy alternatives such as goldfish, whole wheat crackers, chips, anything!
But recently, I’ve investigated popcorn. And while all popcorn is NOT created equal, there are some really good options out there. “Good” meaning, low in saturated fat & sodium but high in fiber and protein. Wow! Some varieties of popcorn are true health foods.
