Healthy Snacks are a Must

For a better, more regular energy boost, people should make healthy eating part of an everyday lifestyle.

People tend to be more active in summer. Meeting increased energy needs is a matter of regularly eating more healthful snacks than just candy bars. The best snacks combine protein and carbohydrates.

We are often led to a run-down feeling by a high carbohydrate snack that will increase our blood sugar and give us that quick boost of energy, but then we drop down after that. For the most part, we are going to get more benefit from a piece of fruit or half of a peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat bread with a banana or raisins, instead of snacks that are high in sugar and fat.

Parents should also realize that children’s energy needs vary, not only with the weather, but with occasional growth spurts. Parents should listen to kids’ requests for snacks. They should plan for snacks. Make sure when kids are asking for snacks, nutritious ones are available. If you don’t prepare for snacks, kids may eat what you don’t want them to. There should be a place where high-quality snacks can be found, such as a bowl on the cabinet, or a basket in the refrigerator. Easy snacks that work well include bananas or other fresh fruit, graham crackers and yogurt cups.
