My children and I have a game we play almost every day called ‘Are These Nutritious Snacks?”. They have hit those tween and teen years where they are starting to get wise about mommy’s obsessive need to feed them healthy foods. THEY might want cookies, candy, and donuts but mommy would rather give them smoothies, homemade granola bars and veggie chips. So, whenever I present them with a new food they look at it rather suspiciously, wondering whether I am trying to sneak in some nutritious snacks. They are perfectly happy actually EATING the healthy stuff as long as it tastes good. Well, we have found some nutritious snacks from Green Giant that we can all feed good about indulging in!
Green Giant’s new veggie chips are a great tasting chip that snackers can feel good about eating. They are made with whole grains and contain zero trans fats. They are also made with real vegetables and contain less fat than traditional potato chips. Since I am never going to curb my family’s desire for chips, I am happy to have a healthier alternative!

I received the Roasted Veggie Tortilla chips and the Multigrain Sweet Potato chips with Sea Salt to try out with my family. I really loved the sweet potato chips. They have just a hint of sea salt on them, which I really like because my husband is watching his salt intake. It is sometimes hard to find nutritious snacks for him to enjoy that also taste good but these made for very enjoyable snacking. You can really taste the sweet potato in them and they are light and crispy. The roasted veggie chips had a natural zesty cheddar flavor to them that gave them a slightly bolder taste than the sweet potato chips. I honestly could have eaten the entire bag in one sitting but made myself share with the children. So, what did they think of these nutritious snacks? My son wanted me to hand over the entire bag of the zesty cheddar veggie chips but I convinced him that saving some for later was a better choice. He enjoyed the light and crispy flavor of the sweet potato chips, too, but the others were definitely his favorite. I am happy to have found a nice balance with Green Giant Veggie Chips. The kids get chips they enjoy and I get to feel good about providing them with nutritious snacks.
