Healthy Snacks

A few simple tips can keep your family snacks low in fat, healthy and tasty:

• Lots of new/ different chips are available (potato, sweet potato, tortilla) in a variety of tastes. Looks for chips that have been baked, not fried.
• Popcorn is always a favorite (don’t add butter, margarine or too much salt.) Air-popped is best.
• Low fat or farmer’s cheese is good with crackers.
• Fresh fruit is sweet, good for you, and it provides fiber and vitamins. In-season fruits generally cost less.
• Check out recipes for low-fat veggie dips to go with colorful veggies for between-meal snacks. Carrot and celery sticks, broccoli and apples, too, are great for dipping.
• Tired of orange juice? Try one of the new fruit (and vegetable) juice mixes at the grocery store or mix your own.
• Low-fat rice cakes fill up hungry kids in a hurry. Experiment to find the favorite flavors at your house.
