  • Plain popcorn would be the best option. How about fixing them a plate that has a handful of popcorn, pieces of fruit etc on it. I do this with my daughter who could eat pepperoni non stop, she gets her roni pieces then a piece of cheese & a piece of another meat she has to complete what is on her plate before getting another round of roni & everything else.

  • Supposedly, it is a whole grain snack with many benefits, that is if you aren't drenching it in salt and butter.

  • As long as it isn't the prepacked stuff, it is a great snack. have a microwave popper, and put nutritional yeast on it.

  • I used to choke on it when I was little so my mom bought me the puffed corn, butter or cheese flavored. I used to eat it with yogurt on the side!
