Health Tip: Snack Healthier

(HealthDay News) -- The keys to healthier snacking are moderation and choosing your munchies wisely, says the American Heart Association.

The AHA recommends:

  • Crunchy foods, such as apples, celery sticks, cucumbers, rice cakes, popcorn and nuts.
  • Low-sugar drinks, such as sparkling water, fat-free milk and veggie juice.
  • Filling foods, such as hummus, low-fat cheese and yogurt.
  • Snacks to curb your sweet tooth, such as fruits, raisins and banana-nut bread.

The AHA encourages people to mind nutrition labels when packing snacks. Always avoid added sugars and salt.
