National Snack Day is an annual American holiday dedicated to snacking. A snack is the collective name for the dishes and foods that can be eaten between meals. The holiday is celebrated on March 4.
There is no reliable information about the appearance of National Snack Day. Snacks are commonly referred to as light meals that allow you to perfectly satisfy your hunger and calmly wait for the main meal. The clearest example of a snack in the United States is peanuts. After the appearance of this nut in the country, it has become very popular. Salted peanuts were popular with baseball spectators and vaudeville theatergoers. Today, peanuts remain a sought-after snack. Another example is popcorn. Perhaps, no movie watching in the theater is complete without popcorn. A trip to an amusement park is often accompanied by the purchase of cotton candy. Examples could go on and on. Snacks include nuts, various chips, candy, donuts, ice cream and more.
How do you make a snack healthy and still retain its essence? It’s simple: nuts, yogurt, fresh fruit (bananas or apples, for example) are your best friends. These products are healthy, contain a minimum of sugar (only natural) and a maximum of useful and nutritious substances.
- The word “snack” appeared in written sources in the 1600s.
- Cheetos cheese sticks and corn sticks cheat your body! They quickly melt in the mouth, and as a result, the body thinks that there are almost no calories and the feeling of hunger does not disappear. Thus, you can safely eat a pack, or even more of these products.
- Chips are a very caloric product. They contain a lot of fat, which negatively affects the stomach. So they should not be abused.
