Grand Rapids, Mich., December 2, 2006 – According to a recent study for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) every state in the U.S. has a child obesity rate exceeding 15% compared to just 4 states 10 years ago. “Parents are concerned for their children’s health and want to do something about it,” says Ron Puryear of the Independent Business Owners Association International ( “Our members, Quixtar Independent Business Owners, have healthy snacks for kids without added fat and calories.”
“New Trim Advantage® Crunch Zone® Snack Chips and Seismic™ Super Snacks Pizza-flavored Puffs are great tasting snacks that kids love and parents can feel good about,” says Dean Kosage. “Both products come in handy, individual, calorie-controlled packets.”
“Crunch Zone Snack Chips are a tasty, baked alternative to traditional potato or other snack chips,” notes Puryear. “With a distinctive honey-barbeque flavor and no added artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, these tasty treats are chock full of heart-healthy soy protein,” continues Puryear.
“Seismic Super Snacks Pizza-flavored puffs also contain soy protein along with a great flavor kids love,” adds Kosage. “They come in handy, 110 calorie packs that make these great snacks convenient for kids’ lunchboxes or as after-school treats.”
