Snacks can be the same as small meals, with foods from the four food groups. They should include complex carbohydrates (grains, cereals, fruits or vegetables), some lean protein (low fat cheese, yogurt, lean meat, chicken, beans) and a small amount of fat.
Here are some suggestions:
• cottage cheese with fresh fruit
• pita crisps with a bean dip
• baby carrots with hummus
• whole grain cereal with milk and fresh fruit
