Frito-Lay Back To School Twitter Party

by Erica

It’s that time of year once again. I can’t believe how fast the summer flew by. As we head out for our back to school shopping, purchasing backpacks, folders and pencils, we also have to consider and prepare for lunches and after school snacks.

While making up your shopping list, be sure to include Frito-Lay SunChips multigrain snacks and Tostitos Scoops.

They are fun and easy additions to a child’s school lunch or snack. They are also a great way to sneak in some whole grains. SunChips multigrain snacks have 18 grams of whole grains per serving, while Tostitos Scoops! tortilla chips have 8 grams of whole grains per serving.

You can also pair the chips with healthier dips, such as hummus, salsa or bean dip, for added nutrients.

Many of Frito-Lay’s snacks are made with three simple ingredients – potatoes or corn, salt and healthier oils, such as sunflower and corn oil, which are high in good unsaturated fats and low in bad saturated fats and salt.
