No snacks between meals! Did you hear that as a kid? We sure did. It made us wonder, when did snacking get such a bad rap? We need to refuel during the day. Kids certainly need to refruel Even the Mayo Clinic maintains that snacking can be a part of a healthy diet – as long as the foods you snack on are nutritious.
Introducing Healthy Snacking Brochure
Learning ZoneXpress has created the Healthy Snacking Brochure to help you choose smart snacks to that will keep you energized between meals. Our educational nutrition brochure includes pointers for making healthy snack choices.
The snacking brochure helps promote good nutrition and health by explaining the benefits of healthy snacking, why we snack, what food groups to include, as well as lists of simple and nutritious snack ideas to take with you when you’re on the go. Nutritious snacks are listed in three categories:
- Portable – when you need a healthy snack to go
- Refrigerated – snacks for home
- Perishable – snacks you want to eat soon after purchasing (or growing in your garden!)
The pamphlets are an easy-to-read nutrition education resource for the doctor’s office, healthcare clinic, classroom, or workplace - anyplace where health care professionals, nutritionists and nutrition and health educators have an opportunity to reach out to parents, families and patients.
