For some reason autumn and popcorn just seem to go together. It is a great snack or treat for Fall get together and how many can pass up a bag of freshly popped corn at a ball game?

Nebraska is the #1 producer of popcorn in the United States, producing nearly 45% of our nation’s crop. Popcorn can be a healthy snack, if made with little or no added salt and butter. It’s also good for you because it counts as a whole grain, reports Extension Specialist Lisa Franzen-Castle. USDA’s Choose MyPlate recommends getting at least half of your grains from whole grains. Three cups of popped popcorn equal one serving from the grains group. Check out these suggestions to make popcorn fun and healthy.
