Great Snacks that Help You Keep Looking Great

We all know that moms are busy. We often run down on steam and need a pick me up. It is what we pick up and put in our mouth that makes the difference. The difference between good snacks and bad snacks can make the difference in looking just all right and great. So here are a few ideas to help you stay looking great and have a small snack:
  1. cereal offers a crunchy snack that will taste good and give a bit of energy. Simply set up a few different baggies of cereal so when you need a snack you have it at hand. To help stave off hunger and add more nutrition throw in a few nuts as well.
  2. yogurt smoothie: adds calcium and protien to your diet which is needed to keep going and many have less than 100 calories a smoothie.
  3. string cheese: low in calories high in calcium and protien. Throw in a few crackers and you have the perfect quick snack. The best thing is this can be a snack that both you and your child will love.
  4. fruit: as they say an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Fruit offers your body nutrients they need with many under 100 calories a serving.
  5. whole grain snack bar or granola bar- these are easy to go to snack, breakfast or whenever we need a pick me up. The teens love them so they are always in the freezer or fridge when needed
  6. instant oatmeal - a heart healthy snack, easy to prepare with just a bit over 100 calories a serving
  7. popcorn - a crunchy pick me up that you can find in snack size 100 calories bags. Popcorn seems to fill one up quickly and yes it is a vegetable
