Cauliflower Popcorn: Fun and Healthy Snack

Posted Jan 11 2012 8:19am

Cauliflower is a healthy snack for kids! Whether they enjoy it raw, mashed, cooked, or in casseroles, they’ll be able to reap the benefits of:

  • Vitamin C! Fight bugs with cauliflower. 1 cup of it has 86% of the daily recommended amount.
  • It’s full of phytonutrients such as: Beta-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, caffeic acid, cinnamic acid, ferulic acid, quercetin, rutin, and kaempferol!
  • Great for digestion! Not only is there 12 grams of fiber for every 100 calories of cauliflower, but a compound found in cauliflower has been shown to prevent the H Pylori bacteria from over- growing in the intestines (something that is actually a common cause of ulcers)

We found this printable to make your own popcorn bags on Family Fun’s website here .

Then we ate both raw cauliflower straight out of the bag like popcorn. AND we tried roasting some and making it crunchy with salt and parmesan cheese.
