Healthy snacks can sustain your energy levels between meals, especially when they include a combination of foods. Choose from two or more of the MyPlate food groups: grains, fruits, vegetables, dairy, and protein. Try raw veggies with low-fat cottage cheese, or a tablespoon of peanut butter with an apple or banana. Snacks give you the opportunity to get an extra fruit or vegetable serving in. Avoid high fat or high salt snacks. Put the snack in a bowl or small plate, so you do not mindlessly eat from the bag.
