How to Eat Smart on the Go

If you’re doing back-to-school shopping, taking a daytrip or headed to the park, snacking on the run can be tough. Vending machine and food court choices aren’t always healthy. Avoid the bad stuff by packing some nutrient-rich, heart-healthy snacks. Here’s a dozen items that are good to go:

 

Looking for something crunchy? Try:

  • Apple slices
  • Carrot and celery sticks
  • Radishes
  • Unsalted rice cakes

 

Crave something sweet? Grab:

  • Raisins
  • Bananas
  • Grapes
  • Low-fat or fat-free unsweetened fruit yogurt

 

Want something munchy? Pack:

  • Unsalted sunflower seeds
  • Whole-grain bread or toast
  • Cherry or grape tomatoes
  • Unsalted almonds, walnuts and other nuts

 

When you make healthy food choices, you fuel up for success.
