  • Better metabolic rate and weight loss

Snacking helps you stave off hunger and also burns calories during digestion.  This can aid in weight loss.

  • Snacking fights fatigue

Studies indicate that a snack during the afternoon slump of 2:00 to 4:00pm can improve your cognitive skills such as memory and attention span.


  • Fights cholesterol and fends off heart attacks
