If you’re always on the go, having healthy easy snacks on hand can be the life saver of your diet!
Small and easy snacks between meals can help you avoid overeating, and if you choose well they can even increase the nutritional variety in your diet.
Even if your main meals are pretty well balanced, it’s easy to put your total diet out of sync with a few poor choices in snacks.
Today’s challenge is to choose healthy easy snacks…
Go for foods that don’t contain too much fat, sugar or salt, and look out for those that provide you with more calcium, fibre, vitamins and minerals.
Read food labels carefully and choose those containing:
- Fat content not more than 3 grams per 100 grams
- Sugar content not more than 2 grams per 100 grams
- Sodium not more than 0.1 grams per 100g
