Choosing well makes snacking a smart move

Think snacking means being unhealthy? Think again. Research shows that more than 50% of our snack choices are nutritious foods like fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy, and meats or other proteins.

Since many people don’t get the nutrition they need at meals, healthy snacking can help provide the nutrients the body needs for good health.
