Have you heard how bad conventional popcorn bags are?

They are full of chemicals and chemicals are exactly the thing I’m trying to reduce at home. I read about Paperbag Popcorn on Pinterest and it seemed simple enough – so I gave it a try! It was quite the success!

  1. Put 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels (organic ones to avoid those nasty GMOs) in a brown paperbag
  2. Roll the top of of the bag down
  3. Place in the microwave and hit the popcorn button (approximately 2 minutes, 30 seconds)
  4. Stop the microwave when popping begins to space out
  5. Pour into a bowl and enjoy!
… Oh so many ways to follow along …

    I was thinking of giving my 2 year old popcorn as a snack, but everything I read online said it was too dangerous and could be a choking hazard. Have you felt comfortable that jemma would be able to eat it safely? Id love to share my homemade organic popcorn with my daughter!

    I think that popcorn for toddlers is considered a choking hazard and not recommended to be given to them. Check the American Academy of Pediatrics. or google for popcorn as toddler food.

    I'd be careful with popcorn and toddlers, as it is considered a choking hazard for little people. Check out the American Academy of Pediatrics or just google for toddlers and popcorn and it will bring up current articles on the subject. But the paperbag popcorn sounds great for the adults. :)

    Very true! I should have added that we only snack on popcorn when I'm watching close. So many foods can be a choking hazard and I've been careful in teaching Jemma to chew well, sit still while eating, and leave the sillies for after meal time.
