Guest Report -- Take Control And Snack Smart

 
Snacking is a is a common habit that can work either for or against improving your health. The food industry has typically promoted snacks that are nutritional disasters. These snacks are brightly packaged and marketed toward children and busy moms, offering promises of vitamin fortification and good nutrition.  Not only do they provide empty promises, but also empty calories that can negatively impact your family's health!
 
Take control of your nutritional environment and snack smart!  Healthy snacking can keep hunger under control, and prevent over-eating at mealtimes. Keep snack calories between 100-250 calories and space them to about 3 hours after mealtime. Nutritious snacks provide addtional opportunities to add in essential vitamins and nutrients. Focus on whole foods like nuts, seeds, fruits and vegetables, where the only ingredient is the food itself. Smart snacking helps maintain steady blood sugar levels and keeps your metabolism and energy levels up.
 
Snack smart to manage your weight and add nutrients to your diet. Avoid the brightly colored packages with processed ingredients, and reach for bright colored fruits and vegetables instead!  The whole-food approach will help you "Feel Better and Live Longer!".
