Remember when men would sit on the couch with a mug of beer while the little woman would take care of the chores? Thankfully, males are still evolving from their caveman days -- according to a study done by Planters nuts, men are grocery shopping more (88 percent), taking care of household chores more (86 percent) and are more involved in child care (82 percent). Check out the infographic below:
And even though buffalo wings and nachos may not be totally obsolete, men are beginning to care about what they eat, so they might even serve fruit and nuts along with the junky snacks. Since men are taking bigger steps toward good health, Planters has teamed up with Men’s Health magazine to create Planters NUT•rition Men’s Health Recommended Mix, specifically designed to provide what men – and dads – want in a snack: three nuts they love (almonds, peanuts and pistachios) with heart health benefits, six grams of protein, six vitamins and minerals and a good source of fiber. The new mix is also endorsed by the editors at Men’s Health magazine.
Planters recently sent me some samples of Planters NUTrition Men's Health, and Alfie really likes them! He eats raw nuts every day so the fact that he like these is really saying something. They are wholesome and filling, and most importantly, not too salty. I love the fact that they come individually packed, because it makes it so much easier for me to pack something healthy for Alfie in his lunchbox.
