Snacks Make Sense
Snacking in-between meals makes sense! Snacks not only help keep your metabolism revved up, but they provide more opportunities to get key nutrients.
Try to stick to small amounts of healthful snacks from all the key food groups.
Some examples include: cups of unsweetened applesauce, containing 60 calories or less; low-fat granola bars, containing 110 calories or less; a 1-ounce serving of roasted unsalted nuts and seeds (28 peanuts, 18 cashews, or 24 almonds); 1 tablespoon of peanut, cashew or almond butter; dried fruits made without sugar, such as raisins or apricots; and whole-grain cereal with at least 4 grams of fiber per cup and no more than 12 grams of sugar.
