Healthy Snacks

Did you know that healthy snacking can be part of a good diet. Many diets recommend eating five small meals each day. These healthy snacks are all about 110 calories or less.

1 small apple and a part-skim milk string cheese stick
28 grapes
1 medium banana or pear
3 tablespoons raisins
12-15 almonds
25 pictachios
10 dry roasted cashews
1/2 cup multigrain cereal with 1/2 cup skim milk
8 dried apricots and 5 thin rye crackers
5 vanilla wafers
6 animal crackers
15 chocolate covered raisins
1 hard boiled egg


60% of all cancers could be eliminated if people ate healthier foods.

I like a little peanut butter spread onto a cracker & topped with sliced strawberries. Yum! Its hearty, satisfying & delicious. Smoothies are another favorite: there are so many variations!
