The Healthiest Snacks from the Store
How We Selected the Winners
Hundreds of companies submitted more than 1,000 healthy snacks to FITNESS. Those foods that were low in calories, fat, saturated fat, sodium, and added sugars made the first cut. Nutritionists Allidina, Gans, and Lippert then sorted through the more than 850 remaining products, analyzing the nutrition facts and ingredient labels to help us determine which ones deserved to move to the next round for taste tasting. The finalists were sampled and voted on by dozens of staffers throughout our company.
