- Plan Ahead
Use a planner to schedule your meals and snacks for the day. Know when you think you’ll need a snack, and what you’ve got planned to eat at that time.
- Be Prepared
Always have the right snack for the right time readily on hand. Carry convenient, portable packed snacks in your bag, or even better, have your own homemade snack in Tupperware or zip-locked and ready to go when you need it.
- Size Matters
Whether it’s homemade or bought, keep your snacks under 200 calories, and be careful with your portion sizes. A snack is not a meal!
- Be Label Savvy
When it comes to snacks, knowing what’s the ‘better for you’ option will safeguard you from consuming empty calories. Pick quality ingredients and know the benefits of what you’re putting into your body at snack-time.
- Snack with Intent
Remember that snacking is a great opportunity to fuel your body, feed it with extra nutrients and keep you on track – so snack with a purpose, snack wisely and snack proud.
