Be snack savvy

Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - FEATURES -

Snacks can re­ally make or break a healthy diet. To en­sure your snacks don’t de­feat your good in­ten­tions, stick to min­i­mally pro­cessed whole foods — and get rid of the bis­cuits and choco­late from your desk drawer.

Healthy snacks in­clude a piece of fruit with a slice of cheese, some vegie sticks with a healthy dip, a tub of yo­ghurt or a hand­ful of un­salted nuts. Turn to page 72 for more healthy snack ideas.

You can also make health­ier swaps for your 3pm pick-me-up, such as a sooth­ing herbal tea in­stead of sug­ary bis­cuits. Aim to have a source of healthy fats, pro­tein or fi­bre for each mid-meal snack, as th­ese help to keep you feel­ing full.

HFG TIP! Stock your fridge and pantry with nut but­ter, av­o­cado, nuts, whole­grain crack­ers, vegie sticks and fruit for a healthy snack.
