In its fifth year, the iconic brand’s Food Awards are spotlighting the healthiest and tastiest new foods to hit grocery store shelves and fast-food menus across America. Over 650 products and menu items that launched nationwide between January 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021 were considered in this year’s eight distinct categories, which highlight some of the most popular food trends—from plant-based options to meal-prep helpers, dessert, beverages, and more.

- Best Healthy Breakfast Foods
- Best Healthy Snacks
- Best Healthy Beverages
- Best Healthy Meal-Prep Foods
- Best Healthy Plant-Based Options
- Best Healthy Frozen Foods
- Best Healthy Desserts
- Best Healthy Fast-Food Items
To judge each category, Eat This, Not That! editors worked with nine registered dietitians on the brand’s Medical Expert Board to develop a strict set of nutritional and ingredient guidelines by which to examine each product on its overall healthfulness. Editors then ranked the healthiest products in terms of taste and value.

- Best Breakfast: Three Wishes Cereal, Frosted

“In 2007, Eat This, Not That! started to forever change the way America eats by highlighting the best (and worst) foods at your restaurants, supermarkets and, well, everywhere,” says Eat This, Not That! author and creator David Zinczenko. “We’re proud to continue our mission the last fifteen years, and with such an important annual program today.”
“I’m so excited to bring back our fifth Annual Food Awards and share these winning products with America,” says Eat This, Not That! Editor-in-Chief, Faye Brennan. “After the past two years, it’s become so clear to all of us that eating right on a daily basis is one of the best things we can do for our individual health and wellness, which is the exact same belief that our brand was built on. I’m happy that our Food Awards can provide the most comprehensive and up-to-date list of grocery store and menu items that our readers can feel good about eating because they’ve been diligently and honestly dietitian-approved and editor-tasted.”
“The Eat This, Not That! Food Awards have always been unique in that they provide a snapshot of what the food industry looks like at that specific moment in time,” says Eat This, Not That! Senior Editor, Olivia Tarantino. “In the awards’ fifth year, it’s been incredible to see how ever-changing nutritional science and food trends have influenced what healthy products and innovative ingredients are developed. Health priorities have evolved, and our award winners reflect the very best products that can support consumers’ wellness goals.”
