Health Tip: Choose Healthier Snacks
-- Not all snacks are bad for you, so it's a good idea to avoid foods that are loaded with sugar and have virtually no nutritional value.
The U.S. National Institute on Aging offers these healthier snack suggestions:
- Have an ounce of cheese with some whole-grain crackers, a container of low-fat yogurt or some low-fat popcorn.
- Gather a bowl of fruit for the kitchen or your living room coffee table.
- Keep a container of raw vegetables in the fridge.
- If you want some chips or nuts, don't eat from the bag. This will avoid portion control issues.
