Tasty Snack Trios: Pick one item from each of the columns below, and you've built an easy, delicious and nutritious snack!

Quick snack Tips:

  • Cut up fruit and veggies so they’re easier to eat. Apple slices will disappear in a snap, while the whole apple may go uneaten for days.
  • Pair any snack with a cup of low fat or fat free milk and you’ll add eight grams of high-quality protein to your snack break, too.
