It can be a challenge to stay healthy and fit when everything becomes hectic during the school year. It is important to maintain balance and to also have cheat days, but there are plenty of snacks you can eat that are quick and healthy.

Here are some fresh and healthy snack ideas:

  • Nuts
    • Almonds, Pistachios, Cashews, etc. 
  • Cheese and Crackers
    • This is a fun snack because it is also versatile! There are many different kinds of flavored cheeses that can help switch it up.

      • These shakes can be made with fruits and leafy greens to ensure that they are healthy and nutritious. They can also be an easy on-the-go snack. 
  • Granola Bars or Nut Bars
    • My current go-to snack is a grain-free nut bar by Autumn’s Gold made with almonds, pecans maple syrup, honey, coconut, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon, sea salt, and vanilla. It is a very simple, satiating, and healthy snack.
  • String Cheese
    • String cheese can be a convenient and filling snacks when combined with things like fruit or nuts. 
  • Yogurt
    • Yogurt is another suitable snack as it is high in calcium, probiotics, and protein.
