The Good Housekeeping 2021 Healthy Snack Awards highlight snacks in the food space that meet the publication’s nutritional criteria (including caps on per- serving calories, sugar, and sodium). Good Housekeeping’s in-house registered dietitian and nutrition experts in the Good Housekeeping Institute’s Nutrition Lab analyzed ingredient lists, Nutrition Facts labels, packaging claims and flavor profiles of hundreds of snacks to find the winners. Consumer testers also weighed in on taste and provided additional real-life analysis.
The Delicious Living annual Best Bite Awards recognizes food products that prioritize flavor and clean ingredients, with Consumer Choice Awards (voted on by natural health shoppers) and Retailer Choice Awards (voted on by natural health retailers). The Sweets & Snacks Expo’s Most Innovative New Product Awards recognize companies for their achievements in introducing innovative candy and snack products to the market over the past two years.
