Healthy Snacks

Healthy Snacks

Almost everybody does it every day: Snack! Found very good information on one of our favorite things to do: snack. Since we are all doing it, they might as well be: healthy snacks.



Healthy Snacks That Taste Great

This first video is excellent. The first half of the video is about healthy snacks. The second half of the video is a real eye opener about how we consume too much sugar in our diets. Sometimes we can read and read and read but there is nothing like seeing the reality of what it really looks like. They discuss the relationship of daily amounts in teaspoons and grams. Thank you Parents.tv, Juli Auclair, and ADA's Eliza Zied.

How to Choose a Healthy Snack

Here is another excellent video on snacks and treats with specifics on types and amounts. In this clip Dawn Jackson Blatner, myLifetime.com's Nutritionist, recommends sticking to 2 healthy snacks per day between meals. Each snack should have about 100 to 200 calories. Some good options are pistachios, granola bars, etc.

Healthy After School Snacks

Great video about kid tested foods from Good Housekeeping Magazine. Trade in the cookies and chips for healthy snacks that kids will actually want to eat.

Healthy Snack Ratings

Good advice from Better.tv, Robert Murray, MD, of Nationwide Children’s Hospital, and SnackWise.org about children’s snacks. Movies, video games and music are rated based on their content. So, why not snacks? A new Web site does just this.
