Improve your oil: It doesn’t make sense to buy healthy, sustainable foods and then cook them with oils made from genetically modified plants.
Most American manufacturers prefer Malaysian palm oil because it is grown and produced responsibly. The country has strict standards in place which protect the environment as well as the palm oil industry workers.
These easy-to-make recipes combine affordable grocery store options – all made with sustainably produced Malaysian palm oil – with other nutritious ingredients. The result? Snacks that will please your kids and your conscience.
Ferrero’s purchasing manager Vincenzo Tapella told a Reuters reporter that, “Making Nutella without palm oil would produce an inferior substitute for the real product. It would be a step backward.”
You’re always on the go, and so are your kids. It’s a rare occasion when the whole family sits down together for a weekday dinner. Instead, you’re reaching for a snack as you head out the door. Fox and Friends asked registered dietitian nutritionist Felicia Stoler how to make the most of these grab-and-go meals. She explained that snacks are an important part of a healthy diet, and if chosen wisely, can help you get needed nutrients. We were elated that she suggested snacks made with healthy fats and included products made with vitamin-packed Malaysian certified sustainable palm oil.
