31 Low-Sugar Snacks That Will Satisfy Your Cravings, from Trail Mix to Cookies (Really)
To snack or not to snack? That is the question. According to the Harvard School of Public Health, snacking can curb your appetite to prevent overeating and provides a boost of energy between meals—that is, if you choose your treats wisely. That means high protein, high fiber choices like nuts and trail mix, plus fresh fruit and low-fat dairy—not an entire bag of gummy worms (oops). After all, studies have shown that too much sugar can increase your risk for cardiovascular illness, and many processed snacks rely on added sugar to increase flavor (and thereby decrease nutritional value). Instead of beelining to the candy jar or relying on a granola bar, reach for any of these 31 low-sugar snacks whenever you feel a craving strike.
