    Answer 1/5

    You have a glass of low-fat milk. Which should you eat with it to make the perfect snack?

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Baby carrots should be your pick! Chips might taste good, but they don't give your body vitamins or energy. Carrots and 2 tablespoons of a healthy dip -- like hummus -- are a much better choice.

     

    Plus, the fiber in carrots makes you feel full longer. So you won't be hungry again soon.

    Answer 2/5

    You have an apple. Which should you eat with it:

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Low-fat string cheese is the right answer. Pretzels aren't a bad snack. They're better than chips because they have less unhealthy saturated fat. But reduced-fat cheese is a healthier choice.

     

    Cheese has calcium and protein. Those help you build strong bones and muscles.

     

    Apples are packed with vitamins and fiber. They're good for your heart and stomach.

     

    Apples and cheese are a perfect pair!

    Answer 3/5

    A peanut butter and jelly sandwich can be a good snack.

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Peanut butter and jelly is a good choice, especially if you make it on whole wheat bread. The whole wheat bread has fiber, which fills you up so you won't be hungry again too soon.

     

    Then spread on 2 tablespoons of peanut butter. It has protein, which builds muscle.

     

    Top it off with just 1 tablespoon of 100% all-fruit jam. That way you won't eat too much unhealthy sugar. Presto! You've made the perfect PB and J.

     

    Wash it down with a glass of low-fat milk or water.

    You have low-fat yogurt. Add:

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Low-fat yogurt is so good for you. It has protein to help your muscles. And it has calcium to make your bones strong.

     

    But sometimes you just want it a little sweeter. Don't add extra honey or sugar.

     

    Add some of your favorite fruit. Fruit is naturally sweet. Try strawberries, bananas, or raspberries. They make your yogurt taste great, plus they give you extra vitamins.

    Question 5/5

    Pizza is an OK snack.

    Answer 5/5

    Pizza is an OK snack.

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    True. A slice of pizza can be a good snack. Just make sure it is about the size of two $1 bills. A bigger slice is too much food. Then skip the pepperoni, sausage, and extra cheese. They have too many unhealthy fats.

     

    Pile on the veggies instead. Try tomatoes, spinach, artichokes. You could even add fruit like pineapple! Anything you put in a salad you can put on a pizza.

     

    Make your own perfect snack-sized personal pizza by using a whole-grain English muffin for your crusts. Add some pizza sauce, a sprinkle of low-fat cheese, and veggie toppings for a healthy snack.
