Helpful Hints

  • Watch portion sizes. A handful is about 12-16 nuts or 10-12 crackers. Choose fruit in smaller sizes. Remember it’s a snack, not a meal.
  • Canned fruit is best when packed in own juice. If that’s not available, choose "Lite".
  • Mix sugars with proteins or whole grains to keep you satisfied longer. For example, have a piece of fruit and a handful of whole grain crackers or nuts.
  • Avoid empty calories: Sodas, sweet tea, sugary snacks.
