I have been trying hard lately to feed my family healthier foods. I feel like I’m doing pretty good with preparing well-balanced meals, however, when it comes to snacking, my good intentions are overwhelmed by all the unhealthy snack choices that my family craves. That usually involves chips, cookies, and other unhealthy snacks. We are taking the Healthy Snacking Challenge by replacing our unhealthy snacks with Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop!.
Healthy Snacking Challenge
During the day, I am pretty good about providing healthy snacks for myself and family. As a rule, we sack on veggies, fruits, and other healthy snacks from “the bowl“. However, as soon as the evening comes, especially on movie night, my willpower is gone. I don’t want all of our good intentions and healthy eating to be sabatogooed anymore in the evening.
For the Healthy Snacking Challenge, my family is replacing our unhealthy snacks with the Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop! We are big popcorn eaters already for movie night, so this should be easy!
My family didn’t notice that Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop! gourmet popping corn is 94% fat free and just 100 calories for 6 cups of delicious freshly popped popcorn. Have you read the labels on your current popcorn? You might be surprised! Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop! provides you and your family with the snack you crave but without all the extra calories and actually with health benefits.
Plus, Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop! comes in fun, convenient Pop Up bowls. Now, you can pop your popcorn and enjoy it from the same bag so you can get back to watching your movie faster! I always pop the popcorn, then find a bowl to serve it in. I really like the pop up bowls, it saves time, dishes, and is easier overall.
Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop! was a hit for movie night. My husband and I have had it as a snack while working late in the evening on our computers too. It has a good popcorn flavor with a hint of butter and saltiness that I enjoy. What I like most is that at the end of our snacking time, we feel satisfied and don’t have the quilt and extra calories associated with other snacks.
For me, taking this Healthy Snacking Challenge is all about trying to make healthier choices for my family. I have found that as a mom, I have the responsibility to care for my family and we don’t snack on unhealthy food if I don’t bring it into the house. I do the grocery shopping, so it is up to me to make the healthy snack choices for my family.
Why is Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop! Healthy?
People that snack on low-fat Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop! popcorn feel less hungry and more satisfied than if they chose other snacks like almonds or pretzels. At just 100 calories for 6 cups, it is a great healthy snack for all. Plus, it gives you great health advantages like fiber (3X the fiber compared to potato chips & pretzels), whole grain (3 cups of SmartPop! gives you 2 servings of whole grains), plus it is low in fat and has 0 grams of trans fat.
