According to Sarah Schenker, a nutritionist said that for snacks, they should choose low-energy releasing food and avoid smoothies or fruit juices. She said that "So many people are misled by snacks which we're told are healthy. In reality people need to think about the nutritional content and how that can help you maintain your energy levels."

After her statement in the Daily Mail, she made some recommendations about how to swap your snacks to healthy ones that you can consume without feeling guilty that it makes you gain weight. To begin with she said that low-fat biscuits must be swap for oatcakes with hummus. Oatcakes contain low sugar content than many low-fat biscuits being sold in supermarkets and most of all it's a great source of fiber.

Cereal bars can be changed to peanut butter on whole wheat toast. This snack is packed with hidden sugar which has natural source of protein and helps to maintain the energy levels which is best for the big and busy day ahead. Schenker said that eating snacks has a negative impact that people need to overcome. This is the reason why she introduced a convenient and nutritious food that may help people forget about the stigma of snacking and become healthier and more active.
