Jewish World Review

The best healthy 100-calorie snacks

By Lori Zanteson

JewishWorldReview.com | Snacks are as dialed into our daily meals as breakfast, lunch and dinner. Yet, these between-meal repasts, which all too often are nutritionally inadequate, may thwart an otherwise healthy diet.

As tempting as it is to grab a 100-calorie pack of chips, cookies, or other deceitfully "healthy" convenience item, they provide energy in calories, but often little else in terms of nutritional value. Counting calories without attention to the nutrients in foods leaves many people. Deficient in necessary vitamins, minerals, fiber, and daily fruit and vegetable intake.

A shift in focus to nutrient-rich foods will get your snacking back on track and reward you with valuable nutrients from whole foods that are as delicious and satisfying as they are nutritious.


Every weekday JewishWorldReview.com publishes what many in the media and Washington consider "must-reading". HUNDREDS of columnists and cartoonists regularly appear. Sign up for the daily update. It's free. Just click here.
