People always ask me about snacks. Snacks should be used, if needed.
An example of an appropriate time to eat a snack is; a delayed meal, a very active day that requires a little more calories, or a small bite to hold you over until it is meal time. Avoid eating snacks just because it is “time” to eat a snack. Try and listen to your body, you may not be hungry, you may just be bored.
