The Healthiest Veggie Chips To Put On Your Savoury Snack Radar
Walk into any supermarket and you’ll find an aisle lined with healthy chip alternatives. Only problem is, not every option in that aisle (despite what the packaging may suggest) is actually, well, healthy.
More often than not, they are still packed with sodium, saturated fat and artificial flavours and preservatives making them not too dissimilar from conventional packet chips found in the next aisle over.
Don’t know where to start? Here is a round-up of some of our favourite veggie chip alternatives that tick all the right boxes when it comes to flavour, ingredients and nutritional value.
