Tuesday Tip (Dietitian): Healthy Snacks

Are you confused about whether or not it’s good to have snacks? Having a healthy snack throughout the day can help you meet your nutritional needs, prevent you from becoming extremely hungry before a meal, prevent you from overeating during meal times, help control your blood sugar, maintain a level mood, and sustain your energy. If you experience hunger, fatigue, irritability, or lightheadedness – try adding a healthy snack like an apple with peanut butter, grapes, yogurt, a whole grain muffin, or carrot sticks with light ranch to elevate your health without spoiling your appetite for your next meal.
