Homemade popcorn is a healthy snack

Popcorn is made of puffed corn kernels and corn is actually a whole grain which carries all the benefits of whole grains: rich in fibre for a healthy digestive system and a good source of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, all beneficial to health!

Moreover, it’s low in calories; 3 cups of air-popped popcorn contain only 80 calories making it a perfect snack for you and your family! Just make sure you air-pop the popcorn or prepare them using only 1-2 Tbsp of vegetable oil for the whole pack. Make sure you avoid extra calories and fat in buttered popcorn or popcorn coated with cheese or caramel!
