Our healthy homegrown vegetable snack range

Our delicious broccoli crisps bring a fresh new option to the world of healthy snacks for kids. Each one of our four fantastic flavours contains at least 27% fresh broccoli (never powdered), making it our #1 ingredient. Made using fresh veg from our very own fields, grown in the Scottish sunshine (subject to availability), our crisps are broccoli like you’ve never had it before

With just 108 calories per 24g pack, they’re a tasty, low-calorie snack for all the family. Low in salt and high in fibre, our snacks are great on-the-go, after school or sports, or even in a lunchbox. And our broccoli crisps might just get those picky eaters out there – we see you – getting a taste for vegetables. Stranger things have happened.

They’re also pretty versatile too. Try them with a range of dips from salsa and guacamole to hummus to add even more nutrition to your diet and keep your kids fuller for longer. Broccoli crisps are the healthy snack that kids from toddlers to teenagers will love.

Why we’re keen on the green

Each flavour of Growers Garden broccoli crisps is gluten-free, vegan-friendly, and available in both 24g and 84g bags but the question you may have is, why broccoli? Why not, say, parsnip? (Great question, and actually, parsnip crisps is something we’re looking at right now so hold that thought.)

The main reason we started with broccoli is that many of our local farmers had quite a lot left over one particular year and we wondered what on earth to do with them. And it just so happens that broccoli is a very popular vegetable with shoppers so it made sense to make our first crisp a broccoli one.

What makes broccoli so good is its fantastic health benefits, not just its great taste. It’s a bit of a superhero to be frank. Check out these powers:

Low in calories, fat and carbs

Due to its high water content, broccoli is very low in calories. A 76 gram serving of raw broccoli contains just 24 kcals, 6% carbs and almost no fat.

A surprising source of protein

Munching on our favourite veggie is a tasty way to help meet your daily protein needs. With 2 grams of protein per serving, broccoli is a lean, green, muscle-building machine.

Promotes great gut health

We all love the florets, but did you know that broccoli stalks are an excellent source of fibre? Eating a diet rich in fibre can support digestive health and help to feed good bacteria in your gut.

Loaded with vitamins and minerals

Broccoli is bursting with a huge range of nutrients, including vitamins C, A, K and B9 (also known as folate) and essential minerals like iron, calcium, zinc, potassium and magnesium.

An inflammation-fighting superfood

This humble green veg is also full of potent antioxidants and bioactive plant compounds that can help to reduce inflammation and support the health of cells and tissues throughout your body.

Keeping it local

The way we make our crisps ensures there is as little waste as possible. Keeping everything local keeps everything fresh and is better for the environment too. You can find out more about that here.

Three is the magic number

Our healthy vegetable snacks come in four delicious flavours and we think they’re all pretty special. They are all made from local, fresh broccoli and are gluten-free, dairy free, low in fat, sugar and salt, as well as lactose-free, glucose free and soya free. Phew. Reading that alone should work up an appetite.
