It has been already a practice in many cultures to have some snacks. There are those who do not like it much as they have other thoughts about snacking. That is because they say that snacking is not good. But on the other hand, it is not the act that is not good but it is the food that is being eaten that makes it not good. There are many junk foods that invite someone for the snack but you can just switch them to healthy ones.
Smart snacking is having the right food for snacks and also the timing of it. Do not just have snacks if you want to but have it if you need to. You may need a new energy to get you through dinner especially if you are late in getting off at work or have a tiring day but still needs to work. Most foods at this times have the label so you can choose one that has no trans fat and the food lower in calories.
You can also have some fruits as the best alternative to your snack. There are fruits that go with the season and they are great to have. You can also have some cookies and crackers that are healthy and not the ones that are oily and with fats. There are many crackers and cookies that you can choose as alternatives on the market. If you like to be safe then you can buy them on groceries and bring them to your workplace or school so you would not be tempted.
