Our top-3 party picks:

Smartfood White Cheddar Popcorn

This smart snack gives a little extra somethin’ to plain ol’ popcorn. Fill up a bowl for your guests and they’ll enjoy the rich taste without the greasiness of chips.

 

Goldfish

A whole serving size is 55 pieces! You’ll be able to fill up your guests without feeding them tons of calories and only half the amount of fat that’s in regular potato chips!

Find a trail mix with cashews and almonds. Help your besties lower their cholesterol and protect their heart with this healthy, guilt-free snack. Can’t get much better than that.

 

 

Eat this, not that!

Baked Lays Potato Chips vs. Regular Lays Potato Chips

The baked version of this classic potato chip is low in sodium and has only 110 calories per serving. And even though they’re not fried, they’ve still got that tasty crunch.

 

Dark Chocolate vs. Milk Chocolate

It might seem like chocolate isn’t a healthy party snack, but serving up dark chocolate will bring on tons of benefits. It’s good for your heart, your brain, and it has bunches of antioxidants.

 

Salsa vs. Queso 

Serve up some fresh salsa with those yummy tortilla chips for a much healthier dipping option. If they’re missing the creaminess of the queso, put out some guacamole instead.
