Benefits of Healthy Snacks
Snacks can be an essential part of a healthy diet. They control binge eating. Eating snacks high in fiber and whole grains may keep you from overeating at your next meal. You could actually consume fewer total calories for the day!


Snacks can also provide extra energy and nutrients when you have a busy schedule. A quick snack of fruit or vegetables can provide you with the nourishment you might not get on your rushed meal.

Children & Snacks
Snacks are also great for kids. Young children have tiny stomachs that can only hold small portions of food at one time. Therefore it is important to fill their small stomachs with nutritious snacks.
