Everyone loves snacks. There are even kids that say “snack” is their favorite meal of the day. While some laugh at this, it shouldn’t be taken so lightly. Snacks can be really important parts of a child or adult’s diet. Snacks give your body an energy boost throughout the day, and they can help maintain your weight because you will be eating less at big meals. Eating less at main meals and having snacks in between will help your metabolism, and you will process food faster when you eat. When we think of healthy snacks, popcorn doesn’t usually make the list. We think of popcorn and we think of butter, salt and sometimes sugar. However, popcorn can be a very healthy snack by choosing healthy popcorn toppings like a salt free popcorn seasoning. Popcorn is a whole grain snack that is naturally high in fiber, low in calories, no sodium and 1 gram of fat (from the corn). It’s the popcorn toppings and how we pop the popcorn that turns this otherwise healthy snack into a high sodium, high calorie, high fat, not so healthy snack.
