Healthy popcorn maker

I swore off microwave popcorn long ago after being reminded how unhealthy they are. Now we pop our own and my old popper would pop small amounts and did not have a warming cup. My new Ozeri Movietime Popcorn Maker pops 2 large bowls at once and has a butter warming cup. I can use my own healthy, low cholesterol butter from home to season.

  • Works with regular and gourmet popcorn types and offers a see-through chute for that traditional movie-theatre taste and experience

At Parenting Healthy I have featured a lot of healthier snacking options in my foods and natural foods topics. By healthy I can mean a variety of things from gluten-free options for those that suffer from celiac to snacks free of artificial ingredients. Now with the after school snacks and football party season starting again, I have a round up of healthier snack options for your family. Some brands are new to me and some I have featured before. In all, I have tried each one below and that information is included.


Popped corn chips that are crunchy. 7 flavors. Gluten-Free and no artificial ingredients. I love the Sweetly Salted Caramel and Cheddar Feel-Good. My son also loves the caramel. Beware! They are very addictive. Available at retailers such as Winco, Rite Aid and Albertsons
