Create a combination or mix of these fruits or vegetables or these healthy snacks and see what their reactions are especially if you eat these with them. You could sit down with them and talk have a conversation with them about their day and watch their faces light up while eating these healthy snacks especially if the vegetables that you used in the snacks are fresh crispy and not bendy. Now I m not saying give them a whole bowlful of these I only meant a couple or so sticks of carrots for example or little pieces of celery sticks perhaps or a snow pea here and there. Introduce these things slowly and watch them as they will eventually love these types of snacks in their diet every day. But only as a snack not as a meal. Raw vegetables will really do them wonders. If you look at fruits you can create a great combination or mix of them and make a fruit salad perhaps as an afternoon snack or for their lunchbox. You just have to watch out when you chop up fruits because they tend to oxidize fairly quickly turning them brown. You could spread a little bit of lemon juice on top of them to seal them off so they don t go brown almost immediately or keep them in sealed containers.
If you are looking for a snack alternative that is as filling and satisfying but without the health issues you might want to replace your afternoon or pre-lunch milk and cookie snack with a tall glass of soy milk loaded with ground flaxseed and maybe an oatmeal low-sugar cookie. Why? Not only does this snack alternative have lots of protein with fewer calories you also feel lighter on your feet after drinking cholesterol-free soy milk. You don t get that heavy feeling when you ingest the liquid cholesterol included in cow s milk. Adding flaxseed to your soy milk reduces your cravings because the dietary fiber in ground flaxseed expands in your digestive system. As a result your system sends less hunger signals to your brain. The brain-boosting and healthy Omega-3 fatty acids in flaxseed is also a great bonus. If you re a snacker (aren t we all?) and you ve resolved to lose weight there s some new research on diet snacks that you might want to know about. A recent study finds that having a snack at midmorning was linked to less weight loss than eating snacks at different times throughout the day.

The findings don t suggest not to snack when attempting to lose weight but rather that the timing of those snacks may play a role in how many pounds you end up losing. The study a randomized controlled trial that took place in Seattle WA involved over 120 overweight or obese postmenopausal women. Those who reported having a snack between 10:30 AM and noon lost on average 7% of their total body weight during the year long study period. Not so bad... but then there s this. Those who didn t snack until later in the day reported an average 11.4% weight loss. It seems that those who choose to snack before lunch keep right on snacking all through the day according to experts. Almost 96% of the subjects who snacked at mid-morning also reported having two or more snacks each day while 83% of those who snacked in the afternoon and 81% of those who snacked at nighttime reported getting in another snack before the day was over.
