Walkers Mighty Lights {Review}

When Charles starts big boy school in September we will be sending him with a packed lunch every day. I'm starting to make a list of things I can include in the lunchboxes, I obviously want something he will eat and enjoy, but I don't want it to become boring.
Sandwiches, crisps, fruit, yogurt, vegetable sticks and so on.

I was quite concerned with sending him with crisps. I didn't want to send him with anything too grown up, anything that was full of salt and fat, or something which could be sharp and get stuck in his throat.

Bring in New Walkers Mighty Lights. The perfect crisps for a school lunch box.




Mighty Lights have 30% less fat than standard potato crisps (on average) and have no artificial colours or preservatives.
As soon as these were delivered the boys gave me just enough time to take a couple of photos and then were sat up the table eating a bowl of crisps each.
Charles chose the Cheese and Onion and Harry chose the Roast Chicken, leaving me to try the Lightly Salted (despite being on a diet I felt quite confident that these crisps wouldn't really affect my healthy food plan).




The crisps are full of flavour and although I was originally concerned about the crinkle cut, which I find my boys struggle with due to the ridges being too deep therefore making the crisps sharp, I was pleased to find the crisps were actually quite soft and the boys were able to eat them without complete supervision in case they started choking.


If I ever need a snack I am likely to head straight for the crisp box which isn't always a good thing. Reaching for the Mighty Lights doesn't leave me with a guilty feeling, especially as a 25g pack is only 114 calories, 4.7g o fat of which 0.5g is saturated fat.


Due to the packaging not being too bulky these crisps are perfect for lunchboxes, picnics, or as a general snack item packed away in your handbag/changing bag.
The crisps aren't at all greasy and don't leave behind a dreaded powder residue which you can guarantee will somehow transfer onto your lovely clean clothes.

The other great news about Mighty Lights, if relevant to you, is that they are suitable for vegetarians, are Gluten Free and contain no nuts or sesame seeds (these are not handled at all in the Walkers factory)

Mighty Lights are available in multipacks at most supermarkets.
