Why Snacks are Important

Snacks are an important part of healthy nutrition. Snacks are a small meal in between your main meals and believe me it is possible to lose weight while not giving up snacks.

If you choose healthy, whole-food options with a lot of protein and nutrients, snacks can be integral to weight loss. Some can even help keep you full throughout the day and limit your cravings for unhealthy foods. 

I personally am an avid snack eater, I love to snack. 

The inclusion of 1–2 snacks in your daily nutrition alleviates the potential digestive and metabolic overload caused by fewer heavier meals and might contribute to meet recommendations for food groups (e.g. fruits, dairy) and nutrients like fibre and vitamins. Making sure you choose the right snacks to include into your daily nutrition may be difficult as some snacks can be calorie heavy which can make it hard to maintain your daily calorie target. 


Here are 21 healthy snack options for you to include into your daily nutrition.
