Snack Mindfully, Enjoy the Moment!

Snacking is an established eating behavior in the US and around the world. Most Americans snack 1 to 3 times a day, with snacks providing 22% of daily calories. Motives for snacking vary from hunger, energy to treating ourselves.  Snacking can be part of a healthy eating pattern, yet, in today’s fast-paced society, snacking can be affected by environmental and emotional cues. Mindful snacking is an approach that can help your clients focus not only on what snacks to choose but also why and how they snack, so they can be more in tune with eating as a conscious behavior. The toolkit developed in collaboration with mindful eating experts outlines a simple and practical approach on how to eat with attention and to be present in the moment for a more satisfying and empowering snacking experience.  Download the resources and visit us at www.health-pro.snackmindful.com.
