Who doesn’t love to snack?

While almost all of us love a small bite in between meals, or a quick snack with friends, it’s important to make snacking mindful to reap its potential benefits in full. Many people today are shying away from snacking out of a feeling of guilt around eating outside of regular meals because it might reflect unhealthy lifestyles or weight gain. It is important to remember that satisfying hunger can be incredibly beneficial. Of course, the most important factor in determining the positive effect of choosing to snack lies in the quality and content of your snack.

 

4 Astounding Benefits of Healthy Snacking:

1.    Increased and sustainable energy
A snack filled with protein, heart-healthy fats and fiber can give you a lengthy energy boost, providing sustainable energy throughout your day. Based on a study conducted by the Harvard Medical School [1], it was found that it is not the time or frequency of snacking, which is the primary factor causing weight gain, lethargy or exhaustion, but the content of the snack which determines its impact on your health. A balanced, nutrient-dense snack is a stable source of energy, while snacks filled with sugar spike insulin production, giving you an energy peak followed by an episode of exhaustion, causing unpredictable energy dips throughout the day.

2. Control your appetite
In-between meals snacking keeps your hunger under control and allows you to stick to a moderate amount of food when you do eat your next meal. This of course is dependent on the healthy choices you make when selecting a snack. Always make sure you choose for healthy snacks with low calories and in small portion sizes.

3.    Improved focus
Enjoying a healthy snack with a low glycemic index during the day can help increase productivity by up to twenty percent [2], claims a study by the World Health organization. Light, specific snacks will help maintain concentration, boost mood, and refine your productivity, making it easier to get your work done more efficiently and effectively.

4.    Health improvements
Healthy snacks and superfoods, like Water Lily Pops, each offer unique health benefits, including boosting your immune system, improving metabolic activity and providing slow-releasing energy.
