Embracing Healthy Snacks

In today's fast-paced world, finding healthy snacks can be a challenge. Thankfully, there's a delightful solution that satisfies your cravings while keeping you on the path to a healthy lifestyle. Note the term healthy. Many baked treats on the market are filled with refined sugars, lots of fats (the bad kind), and flour that lacks nutritional value. When made right, healthy baked treats can pack all the goodness of traditional baked goods while delivering nutrients to your body.

With increasing awareness about the importance of healthy ingredients, more and more people, especially Millennials and Gen-Z, are seeking healthy snack alternatives. Classic snacks loaded with unhealthy ingredients are losing their appeal, making way for a new generation of health-focused bites. 

In a study cited by Sanford Health, 53% of millennials said health and wellness was important in their lives, second only to family. This cohort views wellness as a daily, active pursuit. They eat healthier and exercise more than previous generations. Almost half consider healthy eating a lifestyle choice as opposed to a goal-driven diet.

Similarly, Gen Z also tends to think about what’s in the food they shop for. According to research from Food Insight, over half of Gen Z respondents said they always or often pay attention to labels on food and beverage packaging when online grocery shopping. They are more likely to do so compared with Baby Boomers - 56% of Gen Z versus 36% of Boomers. 

Snacks that Offer Nutritional Value

Healthy snacks can be packed with wholesome ingredients that contribute to a nutritious and balanced diet. When crafted with natural, wholesome ingredients like oats, fruits, and pea protein, these treats offer a burst of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and protein in every bite. Additionally, when healthy snacks are low in added sugars and unhealthy fats, they are a smart choice for those keeping an eye on their nutrition intake.
