Healthy snack ideas from Meijer’s

My recent American Heart Association 5k gave me a chance to speak with some representatives of the Meijer chain when I was done. They were handing out healthy eating tips at the end of the event. I picked up a sheet titled Easy Healthy Snacks and a second called  More for a Healthier You.

I found the healthier snacks online in the form of a video too:—-sensible-snacks

Many of the 15 snacks on the list appeal to me, surprising given what a picky eater I tend to be when it comes to anything called healthy. Apple slices, baby carrots, peach slices and whole grain English muffins all are snacks I have these days on my low-fat, low-salt, low-sugar diet.

Some brand names are on the list, a little disappointing but it’s about selling product for this food retailer too, so it’s understandable.

The second handout looks at lunch and, other than suggesting making salads in jars, left me a bit disappointed. Canned soup is mentioned, a salt bomb. And the build-your-own pizza instructions don’t specify fat-free cheese or low-salt tomato sauce, as I’ve done with my own homemade pizza.
