I'm sure everyone has heard it before but this works! Every snack should include some carbs, some protein, and a little fat. My favorite is 5 celery sticks and 2 T of hummus. It really does help to fill you up between meals!

Buying fruit and bringing it home won't make teens eat it. I got tired of throwing away fruit that spoiled in the refrigerator/icebox so I filled a bowl of fruit and placed it in the center of the kitchen table. Within half an hour there was fruit missing. Teens will eat it if it's easy to grab and run.
Fill a large bowl with apples, clementines, nectarines and plums it makes a beautiful centerpiece and also a healthy after school snack.
It's so easy to get caught up in all the things that weren't perfect - the snack you ate too much of, the workout you skipped, the bad day you had. What's done is done, so change this moment into the life you want to live. Get up and go for a walk or do a few crunches or push-ups. Prepare a healthy snack to have ready in the fridge. Let go of the past!
