Game Day Snack Swaps

This Sunday is a big day for football fans (and, if you’re like me, commercial fans). It’s also a big day for munching and crunching on a variety of snacks that may not line up with MyPlate guidelines. Don’t worry, we’re setting your game day snack plan in motion with a few healthy swaps.

  • Yogurt Peanut Butter Dip: Pair this sweeter dip with sliced apples and bananas.

 

These snack mixes will satisfy any crunchy craving during the quarter.
