Make DIY Microwave Popcorn with the kids! It’s delicious and far healthier than the store microwave popcorn bags!
There have been reports on the harmful effects of microwave popcorn. The the most harmful effects come from the packaging and the chemicals in the “butter” and seasoning.
We still LOVE popcorn in this house and love the convenience that the microwave gives, including in making a quick, healthy, tasty snack.
