Choosing snacks

A veggie platter with carrot coins, sugar snap peas, and cherry tomatoesWhat does the word “snack” mean to you?  Advertising has taught us to think of packaged foods like chips, cookies, or candy.  But a “snack” is anything you eat or drink between meals.  Next time you want a snack, think twice!  Choose foods that give your body what it needs, like juicy fruit, crisp vegetables, or low-fat yogurt.   Or make your own trail mix from your favorite cereal, dried fruits, and nuts!  You’ll get more for your money and you’ll get the nutrients you need to feel your best!
