If you’re still growing, you may feel hungry between meals. You may need a few extra snacks throughout the day, but they shouldn’t be just ‘junk’ food. You need snacks that are packed with goodies to keep you healthy. It’s easy to find healthy and tasty snack foods. Keep some in the fridge, the pantry and in your bag for when you need them.
Snacks need to be quick, easy, tasty, filling and not cost too much. You don’t want to blow your money on sugary, salty or high fat snack foods. If you are eating breakfast, lunch and dinner each day, you should only need about 2 snacks in between.
