Nutrition Middleboro MA Snacks
September madness of activities is in full swing! As we are trying to balance of all of our daily activities, we sometimes begin a pattern of a “what’s easier at the moment” attitude. Unfortunately, that also can become a poor habit in our choices for what we choose to eat and when we eat.

Proper Nutrition 101

We know that proper nutrition is crucial for you and your family’s growth and development.

A simple rule is that a well-balanced diet can help you and your family build strong, healthy bodies, while regular poor eating habits put your health in danger of a weakened immune system, obesity, and shortened life span.

The In-Betweeners – Snack Time Choices

Even if we may be conquering and balancing our regular meals nutritiously, the one time that may get away from us quickly is Snack Time – those quick in between quick bite times that may too often become your main meals if you are not careful.

To help here are a few tips to help make sure your snack time is not only nutritious but health and body repair building moments.

1. For our in-between meal times, it is best to opt for fruits, vegetables, nuts, yogurt, and cheese. Try to stay away from starchy, sticky or sugary foods, like dried fruit, crackers, chips and cookies. These types of snacks are very high in carbohydrates and sugar which could cause a dip in energy, which may have been the reason you were snacking.

2. If you would like a treat, eat your sweet treats at meal times; preferably the mid-day meal. Having the sugars and higher carbohydrates treats at the mid-day meal allow your body the time to break down and use the energy rather than store it as excess fat. Aim for high protein snack in the evening to give your body the much-needed protein to make the natural repairs it does while you are sleeping.

3. Beware of the Wrong Sugars. Almost all foods have naturally occurring sugars. Naturally occurring sugars–like those found in milk and vegetables–are less bothersome, since these choices are healthy overall. What you do want to keep an eye out for when choosing snacks are the additional sugars and corn syrups added by the recipes of man.

Current guidelines state that added sugar consumption should be limited to less than 10 percent of total energy intake, ideally to less than 5 percent. To put simply, one can of soda is equivalent to three times the daily recommended sugar intake of a child. Yikes!

Understanding Best Choices In Beverages

With the importance of hidden sugars not only for our waistlines but our health, we would like to advise your to choose your beverages wisely. Soda and juice may be you or your family’s preferred drinks, but milk and water are much the healthier choices. Milk is an excellent source of calcium which is utilized in building healthy teeth and bones. While refreshing water will replenish, rehydrate, and help cleanse your body’s system of toxins.

Not Just What You Drink But When You Drink It

Small frequent drinks are an essential for overall health, but be careful of constant sipping of beverages besides water throughout the day. Continual consumption of caffeinated or carbonated beverages actually has the adverse effect of dehydration. The best recommendation is to limit snacking and sip on water. If you do prefer to drink anything that contains sugar, drink it during mealtimes or all at once.
