Expert Tips for Choosing Healthy Snacks

How do you know the snack you’re eating is well, actually healthy? Don’t fret – we’ve already done the hard work for you by speaking with nutritionists who know a thing or two about healthy snacking.

sarah-kay-hoffman-lgFor Sarah Hoffman, the entrepreneur and founder behind A Loving Spoon, her snacking habits have evolved for the better over the years. Though she has traded in the candy bars and soda, she can still find great-tasting snacks that are “…quick n easy, portable and contain minimal, quality ingredients.

When determining if a snack is healthy, she also asks herself if she can pronounce all of the ingredients or if a Webster’s Dictionary is needed to decipher them: “real food and real snacks are made from – you guessed it – real ingredients.”
