Healthy Snack Ideas to Share

As healthy eating patterns shift from regular meals to more snacks, these 10 healthy snack tips help maximize every eating opportunity. Think of snacks as mini-meals and combine foods from two or more food groups to provide many of the nutrients you and your family need to be healthy.
