People Love to Snack
Did you know snacks supply nearly one quarter of daily calories consumed by Americans? People love to snack, and snacks are increasingly being referred to as “fourth meal.”
The perfect snack is one that fits into a well-planned, energy-balanced diet – but in order to reap the health benefits of snacking, we must be careful to avoid snacking pitfalls, like reaching for high-calorie, high-fat, high-sugar choices. That’s where strawberries come in.
At just 50 calories and 8 grams of sugar per 1 cup serving, strawberries bring big flavor along with amazing health benefits. Eating just 1 cup, or 8 strawberries, per day may protect against heart disease, diabetes, inflammation, and even cognitive decline.
