Nibbling and munching on snacks are a fun way of eating between meals. Snacks can have both benefits and side effects on a person’s health. Eating nutritious snacks can add more vitamins and minerals to the body. Some people eat fruits, vegetables, and nuts to add protein to their diet. Meanwhile, other snacks can be detrimental such as junk food, sweets, and candies with artificial sugar and food coloring, including commercially manufactured cakes and pastries, bread, and other beverages such as juices and carbonated drinks.
