Think of a snack as a mini-meal that contributes nutrient-rich foods. You can fit snack calories into your personal healthy eating plan without over-spending your day’s calorie budget. Plan snacks ahead of time. Keep a variety of nutritious ready-to-eat supplies on hand, such as whole-grain crackers and low-fat cheese.
