Healthy Snacking

There is definitely a healthy way to snack. Avoid sugary items like candy and soda, and your snacks need to not be consuming enough calories to constitute a meal. Instead, steer towards foods that will satisfy you and keep you feeling fuller longer.
Fruits and vegetables are always a safe bet because they are low in fat and calories. (Just be sure to avoid high-calorie dips.) Yogurt, fruit smoothies, even a slice of whole-wheat toast all make great snacks during the day.
Combining lean protein, some healthy fat, and complex carbohydrates will help you feel fuller longer.
