Eat right with a healthy bite!

Healthy Snacking

Snacking between meals is an individual preference, and while some of us prefer to eat just three meals a day, others feel the need for snacks as well.

We often avoid snacking between meals especially if we are trying to lose weight.  However, a healthy snack can be beneficial as long as it is only a snack and is eaten halfway between meals.  The tip is to keep it small, and ensure it is healthy.

Healthy Snacking is important as it –

  • Increases nutrient intake especially if you choose minimally processed whole foods
  • Helps control appetite –  having a planned snack between meals can prevent you from reaching for something unhealthy
  • Increases energy – a healthy snack made up of complex carbohydrates, protein and healthy fats increases your energy levels for a longer period of time than sugary snacks
  • Increases concentration – adding healthy snacks between meals increases focus and performance, both at school and work
