Snacking is common practice. People snack between meals, snack while watching a movie, and snack while working. It is important that most, of that snacking is done in a healthy way.
What is healthy? That depends on who you ask. Some people insist on only vegetables for snacking. Others allow a little fruit. Combining vegetables or fruit with a protein source, as well as a little healthy fat, is optimal. There are people who do not eat grains. And some who look for healthy alternatives to grains for making homemade snacks, such as almond or coconut flour.
The occasional unhealthy snack is not okay, though. We all deserve one every so often.
