It’s not a secret that from time to time life can get in the way of being healthy. It’s in these moments when self-care and the choices that you make become important. The daily grind can make it challenging to make healthy choices, from plane trips and soccer practices to back-to-back meetings at work. That’s why KIND has shared tips to help you snack healthy when on the go:
- Nutrients Matter. Enjoy snacks with a nutrient-dense first ingredient, such as heart-healthy nuts, whole grains or fruit.
- How Much Sugar Is There? Pay attention to sugar content when choosing your snacks. Sweeteners aren’t just in desserts anymore – they’re everywhere – even in food groups you might think of as healthy.
- What’s It Made Of? Choose snacks with ingredients that you can see and pronounce.
- Be Prepared. Always have snacks on hand – you never know when hunger will strike!
