AHA fosters and supports community efforts to make healthy eating and physical activity the way of life in Wake County.
Snacks are most important for those of us who struggle to eat what we should during meal times. Young children and the elderly or the sick may need to snack regularly to get the nutrients they need. For the rest of us, snacks are mostly unnecessary.
Snacking has become a national phenomenon that is a lost opportunity for most of us. Snacks should include foods that we need to eat more of: deep green and yellow fruits and vegetables, whole grains and dairy.
