Healthy Snacking

We all snack! Try to snack smarter with these healthy snacking tips:
  • When you’re just a little hungry, choose fruits and veggies that crunch–like carrots, cucumbers, apples, bell peppers, broccoli, or plain popcorn.
  • Rethink your drink by choosing plain or sparkling water (feel free to add fruit or herbs to make it more exciting), fat-free milk, or a small glass of 100% fruit juice.
  • For a snack that fills you up, combine whole grains or low-fat dairy with fruits and vegetables, for example cherry tomatoes and hummus, low-fat yogurt and fruit, or whole grain crackers with peanut butter.
  • When you’re craving a sweet snack, try canned fruit, homemade banana bread, or dried or frozen fruits (like raisins or frozen grapes).
