Our First-Ever Food Awards

2012 Food Awards

We're never quiet when we find a new product we love. We make it a point to try out the newest "health" food being marketed and uncover brands with a smaller ad budget and a bigger nutritional bang. But we've never given you one collective list all at once like we've done in our first-ever food awards!

We've spent the summer developing nutrition criteria, scouring every shelf of the grocery store, reading labels until our eyes-crossed, and swapping lunch calories for taste-testing calories all in the name of helping you put the best food possible on your grocery list.

Our qualification process looked like this:

  1. Work with our Mary Hartley, RD to develop a clearly defined nutritional criteria for each food category. Parameters were made for calories, fat, sugar, sodium, fiber, and vitamins and minerals.

  2. Scour the grocery store for five foods in each category that met our criteria or got really close. In a lot of categories, it was sometimes hard to find even one.

  3. Review those five finalists for artificial and chemical ingredients that would immediately remove them from contention for the winning position.

  4. Taste test each food to declare an ultimate winner.
