Snacking mid-afternoon can be a healthy habit to pursue! It can keep your blood sugar and energy levels steady, provided you choose the right foods. To satisfy cravings, try these ideas on for size:

  • Berries like raspberries, strawberries, blueberries and blackberries are all anti-inflammatory and boost the immune system.

  • Veggies of different colors will provide you with the required fiber content while satisfying your crunch. Choose a variety of colors and top it up with yogurt and herbs.

  • Have a nutty snack! Choose from walnuts, almonds and soy nuts. Moderation is necessary, as nuts are rich in calories and fat.

  • A small bar of dark chocolate can give you the benefit of antioxidants and flavor too.
