Better snacks have impact

Modest changes in the types of snacks offered at afterschool programs can have a significant positive impact on children's diets, UC Davis researchers reported in the American Journal of Public Health. The study suggests that a healthy snack menu in an after-school program can help low-income children – those at highest risk of obesity – consume more fruit and less saturated fat, said lead author Diana Cassady, assistant professor of public health sciences at UC Davis.
