Healthy Snacks

When a mid-morning or late-afternoon craving hits, be prepared to grab a healthy snack fast. Consider simple ways to make fresh fruit and vegetables easily available to you and your family. Here are a few ideas:

  • It can be hard to remember to make healthier choices. For a handy snack, keep cut-up fruits and veggies like carrots, peppers, cucumber or orange slices in the refrigerator in plain view.
  • Slicing up produce can be messy and take time, but dried fruits and some veggies are tasty and easy to carry.
  • There are fruits like bananas, apples and pears that will stay fresh on the counter for about a week. Keep a bowl of fruit on a table so you can grab and go.
  • An apple makes the perfect quick snack – and there are more than 7,500 varieties of apples to try!
  • Busy schedules or eating in front of the TV can get in the way of making healthier eating decisions. Take time to eat with a group or one other person as much as possible. You can make healthier eating more fun!
