Here are some roles snacks can play in a healthy lifestyle

  • Snacks can help give energy to fuel our body and muscles.
  • Snacks can deliver nutrients that are low in Americans' diets, such as potassium, calcium, Vitamin D and fiber.
  • Snacks eaten with smaller meals may help to manage weight.

Think Grain-Based Snacks

Getting the right nutrition each day helps our bodies work their best. Grains contain:

Carbohydrates, the main energy source for our body and muscles.
Protein, the building block of all cells.
All are important for a healthy diet.
