Rules for healthy snacks

A healthy snack bridges the gap between meals, and offers the opportunity to include nutritious foods, such as fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy, that supply nutrients your brain needs every day. Follow these pointers to maximize between meal noshes.
 

  1. Think of snacks as mini nutritious meals. Save foods such as chips, sweets, and biscuits for occasional treats.
  2. Limit snacks to 200 calories or less, and account for snack calories as part of your daily calorie allowance to encourage a healthy body weight.
  3. Pair protein-packed foods, such as nuts, low-fat dairy or soy, with carbohydrate-containing food, including whole grains, fruit, and vegetables.  Your brain needs protein to build brain cells and neurotransmitters.  Protein helps keep you fuller for longer, and protein-packed foods are generally rich in vitamins and minerals.  Carbohydrate-containing choices such as whole grains, fruits, and vegetables provide energy and other nutrients such fibre, vitamins, and minerals.
