A [Healthy] Snack Attack

Snacking is not a new trend. However, the way that consumers snack is ever-changing. People are all about convenience while still wanting a clean label. They do not want to sacrifice nutrition or health benefits, but they want to be sustained at the right moment in the right place with the right food.

Whether you are a mother looking for something quick yet healthy to sustain your body for the day as you drop your kids off at daycare, or an adventurous millennial looking for a performance snack to take on a hike, snacks have a wide range.
