22 healthy snack ideas

Healthy snack ideas to balance your day : 

Snacking during the day when needed helps you :

‐  Reduce serving sizes at the next meal and to avoid that ‘starving feeling’.

-­ Have a better energy level throughout the day ( you won’t feel like you want to sleep on your feet in the middle of the street…)
-­ to avoid binge eating

‐ Reduce your weight (reduced serving sizes at meals and fewer binges will help you achieve that goal)
