Put Down the Chips!

Put Down the Chips!

Does your family instinctively reach for unhealthy snacks when you're watching a movie or playing a game? Add more fruits and vegetables to your lifestyle by snacking on produce instead of potato chips.

Here are some examples of healthy options in place of chips:

  • Carrot sticks in low-fat dressing
  • Whole-grain crackers
  • Hummus and vegetables
  • Frozen grapes or bananas
  • Greek yogurt with strawberries or blueberries
  • Spinach wraps filled with tuna or lean-turkey
