No more of the healthy winter snacks, such as a hearty vegetable soup or a light hot chocolate, β€˜tis the season to get some snack ideas for the summer season, such as some fresh fruits and veggies or homemade popsicles.

Fruits and vegetables have the nutrients to get you through the long, hot days and the popsicles are a treat or a dessert after a summer BBQ.2

There are such a wide variety of delicious and healthy snack ideas for summer.

1. Yogurt with Berries

Yogurt with Berries

Yogurt provides a great source of calcium and protein while the berries provide antioxidants and vitamin C.

Your body needs to have a healthy amount of β€œgood” bacteria, and some yogurts are made using this good, active bacteria.

The berries, which would be a nice addition to the yogurt, add a lot of health benefits.

Berries help your body fight stress, contribute to radiant skin, and contain water.

You always have the option of making a yogurt parfait by adding a whole grain cereal into the berry and yogurt blend.

This is just one of many snack ideas for the summer.

2. Fresh Vegetables and Dip

Fresh Vegetables and Dip

Vegetables are low in calories, have almost no fat, and are rich sources of a variety of nutrients.2

These nutrients, including vitamins and minerals, will keep you going through the day and may be the best way to fight age-related diseases.

You’d be surprised how satisfying fresh vegetables with a light dip are on a hot day.

Keep fresh vegetables cut up in the fridge so that you can just grab some veggies when your hunger hits.2

Treat yourself to some hummus dip, guacamole, or make your own vegetable dip with Greek yogurt and ranch seasoning.

3. Cheese Sticks

Cheese Sticks

Cheese sticks are such a quick and easy snack.2

They provide protein and bone building calcium.

Cheese is also rich in vitamin B.

The vitamin B helps the body absorb and distribute the calcium to keep the bones strong for your summer outings.

If a cheese stick alone won’t do it for you, wrap the stick in a whole-wheat tortilla and microwave for 10-15 seconds.

Once you take it out of the microwave, add some fresh salsa and voila!
