Listeners hear which healthy, kid-friendly snacks contain palm oil

My daughter likes to eat Nutella by the spoonful. A peanut butter and jelly sandwich doesn’t need to be saved for lunch. It makes a great snack. But avoid peanut butters made with partially hydrogenated oils. They are loaded with artificial trans fats, known to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. I suggest the Smart Balance peanut butter. It contains antioxidant rich Malaysian sustainable palm oil. This better-for-you ingredient is naturally trans fat free. Palm oil also contains tocotrienols, a potent form of vitamin E, and beta carotene, a precursor to vitamin A.
