5 Reasons Why Snack Size is Perfect

No one is perfect, and it’s important to acknowledge that many of us have probably fallen into the clutches of toxic diet culture “advice” to reach what we believe is our goal body image. We can all take a collective sigh of relief to learn that a lot of that toxicity has fallen off in more recent years, but that doesn’t mean it’s eradicated forever.

Let’s take a deep dive into the world of snacking and why Perfect Bar Snack Size could be your next best friend when you need a bite.

To snack or not to snack

Snacking is usually something small that won’t spoil your dinner, yet gives you enough energy to carry on. Your snacks will likely come in a couple of hours after breakfast, and again after lunch.

The Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Agriculture outlined four benefits that can help guide you through to healthy snacking that supports a happy life:

  • Helps curb your appetite and avoid overeating in your next meal.
  • Supports nutrition intake if you’re not feeling well or not hungry for a full meal.
  • Boosts energy levels if it’s been several hours since your last meal and your blood glucose levels are low.
  • Provides nutrients in snacks like fruits or nuts.

Next, let’s go a little further and learn more about the snacks that you should reach for as you plan your meals.

Snacking on the go

Within the recommendations presented by the Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, what you choose as a snack matters a lot. Even though highly processed foods seem easy, they can hurt your daily nutrition intake.

To simplify your snacking so you’re never left staring at another vending machine, here are some guidelines you can follow to set yourself up for success…future you is thanking you already.

5 Reasons Snack Size is Perfect

If it’s all a matter of what you eat, let’s dive into how to formulate a yummy snack you’ll be excited about:

  • Get your nutrients in throughout the day: You can reach your nutrient goals while you snack when you choose the right types instead of packing them into huge meals.
  • Bite-sized is best: When you’re on the go, you need something easy that you can keep in your bag and doesn’t take up a bunch of space.
  • Satisfy your hunger: Instead of ruining your next meal, pick something with 150 calories or fewer.
  • Pick something yummy: Choose food packed with your favorite flavors, especially if they meet your sweet, savory, or crunchy cravings.
  • Gets you through the 3-o’clock slump: Snacking can help you feel satisfied, without overeating.

Tips on choosing the right snack

With the help of Harvard’s School of Public Health, let’s take a look at some tips on choosing the right snack:

Be conscious of how often you snack

Take a look at the times throughout the day that you feel hungry and start thinking about snacking. What time does that usually happen and what is your typical response?

Choose nutritious alternatives to ultra-processed foods

The best way to avoid “bad” foods is to eliminate them from your reach. Pack a nutritious bite that lives on your desk or in your bag whenever hunger hits.

Notice why you snack

Being conscious of your moods when you feel like snacking can help you curb your cravings. If you’re hungry, take the next step. If you find yourself emotionally eating, consider mindfulness practices first before diving into an ultra-processed bag of food.

Make snacking fun and yummy

All in all, it’s okay to snack. Making snacking fun, yummy, and better for you can take your daily food intake to the next level. You want nutrient-dense, delicious options that won’t throw you down a rabbit hole of energy spikes and crashes.
