Apples and Oranges and Grapes, OH MY!

 

Let’s celebrate Snack Food Month! Now that you’ve settled into the New Year, don’t forget to make healthy eating part of your daily snacking. While Snack Food month originated to increase sales of potato chips, crackers, and other less healthy foods during the month of February – a typically slow month for snacking – remember to choose wisely when looking for something tasty to eat. There are lots of great snack choices that are yummy as well as good for you. Don’t be shy about trying new foods. Try following the food pyramid designed by the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) to ensure you are getting the best food for your body.
