Snacks are part of a healthy diet

Snacks are part of a healthy diet

Snacks keep us over till the next meal. Balanced snacks and meals at consistent times during the day keep your blood sugar stable and keep you from overeating.

Healthy snacking include protein, fibre, and other nutrients that will keep your blood sugar in an optimal range. In contrast, low blood sugar causes exhaustion and makes you crave sugary or fatty foods.

Parents can provide six meal opportunities: three meals, with two to three snacks.

Eating three meals doesn't work for everyone. Some people like to graze. They may crunch on veggies and dip, potato chips, cheese with cracker, chips and salsa, or rice crackers and hummus.

Establish a regular eating schedule and stay with it. For example, breakfast at 8 a.m., lunch at noon, a snack around 3 p.m. and dinner at 6 p.m.

If you want to eat some snacks right now, consider if you're just thirsty. It is not uncommon to confuse hunger with thirst.

Snacks can be seen as fuel that helps to keep your energy up until mealtime.
