Salba Smart’s 100-calorie Bite Size Organic Tortilla Chips

It is back to school time, part of that includes providing snacks for your kids. I don't know about your school, but our school district allows a small snack to be brought in for a snack time that is between morning & lunch. If your school doesn't do this, then there is still lunch snacks to think about. One of my struggles is sending things that my kids enjoy, that are still healthy for them. There is a brand new snack out there that fits the bill, Salba Smart’s 100-calorie Bite Size Organic Tortilla Chips.

We were sent a big box of these snack packs recently. My daughters both really like them & have been begging to eat them. Always a good sign, especially with my oldest who has a major sweet tooth. I hate a bag and they are super good. They would be amazing with some salsa for home! My brother even snatched a bag and liked them, he is the fast food King, so a good sign of quality product.

The best part of these chips is the Omega-3 which has tons of great qualities. Omega-3 fatty acids play in the health, brain development, and behavior of children, but getting kids to eat foods like salmon, flax seeds and walnuts isn’t always easy.
Salba Smart Natural Products offers a full line of tasty snacks made from Salba® - Nature’s Perfect Whole Food. The most nutrient dense variety of Salba is the richest whole food source of Omega-3 fatty acids and fiber found in nature.

Deficiency in Omega-3s has been linked to ADHD, vision problems, depression and violent behavior in children. According to the Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, children with ADHD taking supplements of Omega-3 fatty acids: EPA and DHA, showed improvements in central ADHD symptoms like inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity, during a 2007 study. Every serving of Salba provides over 3,000 mg of Omega 3’s and over 5000 mg of dietary fiber. It is also high in antioxidants, protein, calcium and iron.

“Ounce for ounce whole Salba grain provides three times more iron than spinach, 15 times more magnesium than broccoli, and six times more calcium than whole milk,” said Rally Ralston, managing partner of Salba Smart. “Salba grain is the only food that is part of each of the six groups of the USDA Food Guide Pyramid, and we have made it easy for parents to incorporate this essential food into their children’s diet with Salba products that meet the demands of busy, on-the-go lifestyles,” he added.

Salba Smart’s products include ideal lunch box solutions: 100-calorie Bite Size Organic Tortilla Chips (0.7oz); All Natural Whole Wheat Tortillas (10.5oz, 12.4oz, 20.8oz); and Pretzels made with organic flour in Sticks (7oz) and Thin Twisted (7oz). Its Whole Grain (12.7oz) and Ground Salba (6.4oz) can also be added to everyday foods such as cereal, pancakes and smoothies.

Other Salba Smart products include USDA Organic Tortilla Chips in White Corn, Blue Corn and Yellow Corn flavors (8oz); and Organic Salsa in Mild, Medium and Hot flavors (12oz). All products contain 0g of trans fats, and are gluten free (except tortillas and pretzels) and Certified Non GMO.

Their marketing pitch sounds like you could live off tortilla chips and no other food! At least they are tasty.
