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.

Unrefined Malaysian palm oil has a vibrant orange color because it is loaded with beta carotene. This vitamin A precursor is often associated with carrots and tomatoes, but Malaysian sustainable palm oil is actually nature’s richest source of this powerful antioxidant. Palm oil contains 15 times more carotenoids than carrots, and 30 times more than tomatoes.
