Trade-Up Tuesday: Cookies and Milk for Santa

Get your kids involved this holiday season by treating Santa to a healthy snack! By trading in your Oreos and trading up to WhoKnew cookies, Santa is sure to be surprised! With a NuVal of 24, these cookies are a significant upgrade from Oreos and their NuVal score of 4! You can also let Santa know that these WhoKnew cookies pack a punch of calcium, fiber, and whole grain. By trading in your regular skim milk with a  NuVal score of 91, and trading up to Smart Balance Heart Right Fat Free Milk, you get a NuVal score of 100, extra Omega-3s and plant sterols with an improvement of taste! What’s so great about this trade up is that it tastes rich and creamy like 2% milk while still being fat free. Boy, will Santa think he’s being spoiled this year!
