Back-to-School with New Tortilla Popchips!

popchips has launched a new product (a love triangle you won’t regret!)—tortilla popchips.  The new product  hit shelves this month, just in time for back-to-school, with its four new explosive flavors: nacho cheese (a nacho about the rest), ranch (the coolest cream of the crunch), chili limón (chips gone wild. with a twist of limón) and salsa (meet your newest salsa partner). 

A healthier lunchbox alternative, tortilla popchips have 0 grams of trans fat and are made with stoneground corn masa, the same whole grain corn used to make traditional tortillas.  with no fake colors, fake flavors, cholesterol or preservatives, these chips are packed with flavor and have half the fat of regular flavored tortilla chips.  We received a chipment of these tasty chips and loved them! I can’t even pick a favorite!

Need more ideas to inspire your kids to eat healthier? New mother jillian michaels provides her special back-to-school nutrition and health tips below:

It is important to give our kids positive reinforcement– we cannot make food items sound “off limits” or else they will only want to eat it more.  Instead, we have to show them that healthy eating can also be delicious.  it’s all about making smart choices and moderation.

  • ·         there are a lot of snacks out there that seem healthier, but still have hidden ingredients that are anything but.  for example, juice boxes may appear to be the better choice over soda, but they are often still filled with sugar – especially high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, flavors and more making them just as bad.  looking at the calorie content is important, but it is just as crucial to look at all of the ingredients.
  • ·         I can’t stress enough how imperative it is to look at the ingredients list of the foods you are giving your children.  make sure the treat foods they eat are not laden with chemicals and poisons.
  • ·         let’s face it, kids love cookies.  instead of packing the usual unhealthy options with ingredients you can’t pronounce, go for an organic option that has no hydrogenated oils or trans fats and is even more tasty.
  • ·         If the only option at school is regular milk, pack a juice box size carton of either organic milk or coconut or almond milk so that your kids aren’t taking in unnecessary hormones.
  • ·         Salsa made from fresh, whole tomatoes and vegetables is actually a vitamin-packed healthy snack choice.  the trouble is the corn chips.  those things are full of trans-fats and artificial flavors, quickly turning a smart snack choice into a terrible one.  that said, I’m a big fan of the new popchips tortilla chips.  they are naturally delicious, popped, and still packed with flavor that doesn’t include fake flavors or fake colors.
