I’m excited to announce that I’ve been chosen to be a Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop! Ambassador! As an ambassador, I’ll be sharing a series of posts this month about healthy snacking with Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop! and taking their “Healthy Snacking Challenge.”
With a household of six, I’m always on the lookout for healthy new snack ideas. It seems my kids eat more each week and my husband and I enjoy a snack here and there too. It could be a mid afternoon snack for the kids before karate practice or a light snack for myself while I blog.
But snacking can add a lot of calories and really mess with a healthy-eating plan if we’re not careful. I’m not on a diet, but I definitely watch what I eat so I can maintain a healthy weight. And I try to help guide my children to make smart choices when it comes to eating too.
That’s where Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop! popcorn comes in. With just 100 calories per 6 cup serving (yes, that’s SIX cups!), it’s a great alternative to other snacks. The popcorn is 100% whole grain, a good source of fiber, low in fat, and has zero grams of trans fat. You can eat a decent amount too which is more likely to keep you full and satisfied verses other snack foods, like crackers or potato chips. Even a new study by ConAgra Foods found that to be true. And who doesn’t love popcorn?
The “Healthy Snacking Challenge” is to replace other snacks with Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop! I’ll be trying this out over the next couple weeks and I’ll let you know what I think! My kids and I have already tried out the SmartPop! popcorn and yummy! I’m really excited about this challenge!
