Q: Sometimes I have to eat dinner later then intended. What are some good snack foods to tide me over?
A: Be careful what counts as a snack and as a treat. Avoid pudding cups, baked chips, certain energy bars and even those 100-calorie snack packs. Those are "treats". You should eat something that will sustain you until your next meal such as a piece of fruit or veggie, string cheese, raw almonds, or low-fat yogurt. Those have more nutrients and will keep you feeling satisfied longer.
