Healthy Snack Information You Have Been Craving

March 4, 2024

Who doesn’t love a well-timed snack? We all know the feeling of being hangry (a mixture of hungry and angry) and how low blood sugar can affect not only mood but also the ability to focus on work, school, and everyday tasks. March 4th is National Snack Day, so take some time to revel in the possibilities of your snack time. If you make it a healthy treat, you might be setting yourself up for nutritional success throughout the rest of the day!

What can a healthy snack do for me?

Snacks, when timed well, can help you to stay fueled throughout your day. If you choose wisely, a good snack can provide extra nutrients your body needs such as protein, vitamins and minerals. Not only that, eating a small, healthy bite between meals may mean you are less likely to overeat at mealtime. This can be especially important for those who are trying to lose weight. Even though fasting has taken on a life of its own within wellness culture, many dietitians say that eat consistently throughout the day is the best way to fuel your body. In fact, for those who work out regularly, eating healthy snacks can help to replenish stored energy and speed up muscle recovery.
