Healthy Snacks can even be included in a weight loss plan. The trick is to choose a snack with about 100 calories and a mix of carbohydrates, protein and healthy fats. Aim to eat your snack about halfway between meals to keep energy levels consistent.
Snacking is important for children because their smaller stomachs fill up fast and they burn energy quickly. Between meals, snacks give their growing bodies the nutrients and hydration they need.
According to research from Mintel, “… nearly all Americans (94 percent) snack at least once a day. What is more, half (50 percent) of adults snack two to three times per day with 70 percent agreeing that anything can be considered a snack these days.” (Note from Four Winds Nutrition: That is why we think it is important to offer on this site a variety of Healthy Snacks!)
Additionally, Oxygen reports that, “Research shows that eating the right combination of nutrients in these small meals can enhance gym performance, fat-burning, muscle-building and recovery.” They also cite a study in the British Journal of Nutrition showing that those who ate a high-protein snack an hour before lunch ate less at lunchtime (or at their next meal). They also state that, for those who get really sleepy around 3pm, eating a fiber-rich snack two hours after lunch will help curb that tiredness and make them feel more awake. Lastly, Oxygen reports that, if you are truly hungry after an active day, you should have a snack made of high-quality protein. Our muscles are repaired during sleep, and protein-rich snacks can provide the necessary amino acids for proper repair to take place.
To boost focus, choose snacks full of antioxidants and healthy fats. A trail mix including almonds, dried berries, and dark chocolate would be a delicious way to promote mental acuity throughout the day, nurturing productivity and efficiency while keeping palates happy.
