Curb your cravings! 5 Healthy Alternatives to Common Snacks
Snacking has picked up a bad rep.
When we think of snacks, the first items to come to mind are often of the salty and sugary variety – crisps, chips, ice-cream and fizzy drinks.
When our body is under-nutritioned and we are feeling ‘hungry’ it is often because we are dehydrated or lacking in essentials nutrients such as sodium, calcium, zinc etc
However, there are much better sources of these nutrients that aren’t as high in sugars, salt or saturated fats.
At Prep Perfect, we have gathered a list of some of the most common snack types and provided some healthier alternatives.

This infographic provides five alternatives to common snacks, and describes why some may be more nutritional than others. This simple comparison approach works well, as a simple "this or that" puts the nutritional aspect into a consumable perspective. An additional benefit of this approach is that it allows each of the five comparisons to be broken off into smaller, shareable pieces of micro-content. As this infographic is long, it won't fit in many places. The icons of the foods are clear and easy to follow. One thing this might benefit from is slightly more in-depth stats for the foods — why those vitamins are benefits, etc. Overall, we give this an A.
