Smart Summer Snackin'
Summer is here. Kids are home. Vacations are planned. Road trips are on the schedule. Life is just about to get crazy busy. With schedules disrupted, it’s easy to let nutrition fly out the window. But there is no need to cut corners on your family’s health when there are so many great and nutritious snacks available at the local supermarket. Elizabeth Somer, registered dietitian and author of Eat Your Way to Happiness joined us with some ideas how to satisfy a snack craving and still eat well
A recent study found that kids are snacking, but mostly on junk...which accounts for up to 27% of their calorie intake and mostly from fat, sugar, and refined grains. That type of snacking will lead to weight gain, poor diet, or both.
