Taking light mid-morning and afternoon snacks has become a staple everyday routine for Filipinos. Although some would say eating three meals a day is enough to keep us going, a quick nibble on a healthy treat in between breakfast and lunch and some time in the afternoon can help bring back focus on school or office work. Health experts agree that consuming the right kind and proper amount of food for snack time is advantageous, even for people with diabetes or those who want to lose weight.

The American Diabetes Association says there’s no need to give up favorite treats as long as these are eaten in accordance with a healthy meal and snack plan. So, along with fruits and vegetablebased snacks, one can eat sugar-free versions of much loved treats. Just do remember the magic word: moderation.
