Snacking can support a day of healthful eating — or it can sabotage it!

Research suggests that Americans are snacking more than ever, with a recent study indicating that 27 percent of children’s total intake for a day comes from snacks. And, according to NHANES data, adults consume an average of 400 to 600 calories a day from snacks.

Given these data, it is important to understand the basics of building healthy snacks that support physical, mental and emotional health. In the video blog below, I provide practical tips about snacking smarts.
