Why you should eat only fruit and vegetable snacks between meals

Its time to stop the tempting high fat and high sugar snack foods. When looking for a nutritious snack during the day fruit and vegetables are the number one choice.

It is recommended that every person should be eating at least 2 pieces of fruit every day. One serve is one piece of large fruit like apple, pear or orange, or two pieces of small fruit like kiwi fruit or apricot, or a small handful of grapes or strawberries. Fruit is an excellent snack because it contains fibre, micronutrients like Vitamin C, and fluid. Fresh fruit is the best option, but you can also include dried fruit, just be careful not to eat too much of it and include some water with it.

It is recommended to be eating 5 serves of vegetables a day, and what better way to help achieve this than to include some as snacks. Cut up any of the following; celery, carrot, turnips, fennel, cucumber, capsicum, mushrooms or tomato wedges and eat alone or add a tzatziki, hummus or salsa dip. Vegetables are full of fibre and micronutrients without added kilojoules, and best of all are fresh and crunchy.
