snack ideas

Healthy snack ideas quell untimely hunger pangs and are healthy too. A snack in between meals ensures that you do not over indulge at meal times. But opt for wholesome snacks. Fast foods or processed foods as snacks offer no nutritional value. They simply fill you up with empty calories.

Indulging in healthy snacks ensures small meals throughout the day. Not just one or two big meals.

At everyone in the family can find healthy snack ideas:

What Makes A Healthy Snack

A wholesome snack incorporates ingredients that promote overall health. Typically they are low in fat, sugar and sodium. They contain higher concentration of proteins (for appetite control), fibers (for fullness) and other food groups and nutrients that promote overall nutritional balance.

The principle behind all healthy snacks is the same. The difference between them stems from their purpose of use.

For instance with kids, the idea is to offer snacks that provide higher energy because they are constantly active. So proportion of "good" carbohydrates in kids’ snacks may be high.

But low calorie snacks intended for people wanting to lose weight incorporate a higher proportion of proteins for energy rather than carbohydrates.
