Eating right isn’t limited to mealtimes. Trying to cram all your essential nutrients into three (or if you’re busy, sometimes just two) big meals can be difficult. So try spreading out your food intake throughout the day by incorporating mini meals or snacks. Snacking between meals can actually be good for you, as long as you have snacks that are nutritious. It can add variety to your diet and help keep your energy up throughout the day.
But eating should never be a chore, so keep a variety of snack foods at hand and try different textures and tastes to find those that appeal to you most. Here are a few snack ideas we’ve come up with for you to try:
|Sweet Snacks||Salty Snacks||Crunchy Snacks|
|Fruit (fresh or dried)||Cheese & Crackers||Carrots, Celery, & Broccoli|
|Yogurt w/ fruit or honey||Nuts||Granola|
|Crackers w/jelly & peanut butter||Olives||Trail Mix|
|Fruit Smoothie||Veggie Chips||Rice Cakes|
Even if you’re not particularly hungry, make an effort to eat regularly, even if it’s only a few bites. Those few bites can add up and help contribute to a nutritionally balanced diet, giving you the nutrition you need to help you be your best.
