If we could do one thing to improve the way kids in America eat it would be this: Clean Up Snacks.
When we talk about snacking, most people think about healthy snacks: fruits, vegetables, nuts. In truth, though, the more our kids snack, the worse they eat. Did you know kids get most of their snack calories from desserts and sweetened beverages? And that the largest increases in snacking have been in salty snacks and candy? That’s why it’s time to become a Snacktivist.
What is Snacktivism?
Registered Dietitican and mom, Sally Kuzemchak, the star power behind Real Mom Nutrition started a grassroots effort to improve the current culture of snacking. Sally calls this movement Snacktivism and she has written an amazing new ebook.
