Benefits Of Healthy Snacking

Snacking has always been considered as something not good for health. Going on an eating binge by snacking on unhealthy foods will only lead to an expanding waistline. But for all those out there, who love snacking, just don’t worry, here I will discuss some very useful benefits of healthy snacking, because having healthy snacks during the day will keep you fit both physically and mentally.

Here Are The Benefits Of Healthy Snacking:   

  • Healthy snacks are good for controlling blood sugar levels especially in people who have problems in maintaining them. Healthy snacking improves blood sugar control by providing a ready stream of carbohydrates.
  • Healthy snacking controls your hunger levels to a minimum and also won’t let your body feel like you are depriving it of food. If you have long gap of time between your meals, try to include a few healthy snacks in your diet.


  • Instead of snacking on junk food like fries, chips or calories rich cookies, make a habit of snacking on healthy food like fruits, salads, yoghurt, whole wheat grains this way you give your body lot of essential vitamins and nutrients. These are great source of energy and at the same time they provide fibre that helps cleanse the body.
  • Healthy snacking in between meals help you maintain a proper body weight. By giving your body a regular supply of healthy snacks at regular intervals through out the day, you give your body an energy boost and due to snacking at small intervals you tend to eat lesser during your regular meal times this helps your metabolism and digest food faster and you are in a better position to maintain a healthy body weight and you are also less prone to being overweight.
  • Develop a habit of healthy snacking in your children at an early age. Instead of snacking on French fries, candy bars and cookies which are high in fats and sodium and can drain out your child, make your children snack on healthy fresh fruits,  juices, salads, nuts, curd and cheese this increases and builds their immune system. Though most children would prefer to go in for junk food for their snacks, but try to develop a habit of healthy snacking in children at an early stage so that they develop a liking for healthy food and prefer these for their snacks.

      It’s good that you avoid junk food and take healthy food. To maintain a healthy weight you need to have nutritious food and and at the same time have a regular fitness regime. Do not overeat nor under eat and hopefully you will achieve your goal of getting healthy body weight.

    Unsalted nuts such as raw almonds and dried fruit can be a good snack source. Nuts have good fats and dried fruit also counts towards your overall fruit and vege target of 5 plus per day. Cheers.

    Some more ideas for healthy snacking,
    Stock your cupboards and fridge with low-fat snacks, your home environment is very important, you will eat what is in your reach.
    Take low-fat snacks to work eg. dried fruit, fruit & nut mixes
    For salty snacks, try pretzels, popcorn, crisp breads, rice crackers, and rice chips
    For sweet snacks, eat quality dried fruits like dates, figs, sultanas, apricots, apples, prunes, peaches, and pears
    Stop snacking after dinner. Try cleaning your teeth after dinner to prevent you from returning to the fridge
