Healthy Habits: Eat Healthy Snacks

Snack Smarter

Get a nutrition boost with healthy snacks. Eating snacks between meals helps satisfy cravings, keeps your energy and mood high, and provides extra vitamins and minerals that may not be met during meals. Eat a combination of complex carbohydrates and lean protein with each snack to keep your blood sugar stable and to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. For example, sprinkle low-fat yogurt with high-fiber cereal, spread peanut butter on a slice of whole wheat toast and top with half of a banana, or dress a small baked potato with low-fat cheese and salsa.
