Snacking on banana chips means you'll get some nutritional value for your calorie investment. The chips are a good source of some essential vitamins, especially magnesium. Your body needs magnesium for energy production, cell-to-cell communication and DNA synthesis, an important part of cell growth.
It also works together with other minerals - like calcium and phosphorus - to make up bone and tooth tissue, which means eating foods high in magnesium may help keep your skeleton strong.
