Many children may still be eating treats from Halloween. But it's important they enjoy some healthy snacks too. In today's Health Minute, Holly Firfer talks with an expert about the difference between treats and snacks. When the Hartman kids get home from school, the first thing they do is get something to eat. But instead of going for healthy snacks, they often ask for sugary treats. "Mommy can I have some candy,?" asks Abby Hartman. "No," relplies her mother, Amy Hartman. "Why?" asks Abby Hartman. "They argue and always want to go for the junkier snacks and I just try and educate them on the importance of eating healthy," says Amy Hartman. It's an uphill battle for many parents because lots of the so-called snack foods are really treats, goodies packed with added sugar or fat. But snacks should be healthy mini-meals that tie kids over between regular meals. Registered dietician Julie Schwartz says one of the best ways to tel if a food is a snack or treat is to read nutritional labels. "Try to avoid sugar in the top three categories," she says. "Any kind of sugar, or if it's listed three different times." Amy Hartman is shopping for healthier snacks now, and when she gets push back from her kids, she just says no. "That's not what we're going to have for a snack, we'll eat that for dessert tonight," she says.
