It’s snack time!

February is National Snack Food Month, so this month, focus on snacking in the healthiest ways possible. Most days, we need a snack or two (or 7) to make it through the day… and if we choose nutritious choices, snacking more can make a positive impact on our overall health; believe it or not, it can even help with weight loss!
