Healthy Snack Combo

If you love eating chips and wash it down with soda then you're doing more harm to your body aside from putting bad stuff in your system.

Here's a quick tip to keep your snacking on the right track - ditch the bad combination of soda and chips and replace it with this fruit and healthy beverage: apple and a glass of skim milk.

An apple is rich in fiber and skim milk in protein. Protein will sustain your energy longer and can alleviate hunger for a couple of hours.


  1. I wish I liked milk, but I have hated it ever since I was a little kid. I don't really like any dairy except cheese.

  2. I always forget about milk, i guess as we get older we think we no longer need milk, but our bodies do and they need the vitamin D and calcium you get from milk. I really need to increase my milk intake. Thank you for reminding me

  3. Soda & chips as a snack makes me cringe, and I definitely put on my judgmental mommy hat when I see kids eating that. Milk and an apple, even water and pretzels...just about anything is better than carbs and caffeine!

  4. I never think to drink milk myself when I am craving something but I always give it to my kids. Thank you for the reminder!

  5. I love apples and milk, so this is a perfect combo for me, much, much healthier than chips and pop!

  6. I love apples and milk but usually forget this when I'm eating chips. My instinct is to match chips with soda.

  7. I have never been a big milker drinker I drink maybe a glass a week. But I only drink about one can of pop a month so at least don't have that bad habit. I love having apples as a quick afternoon snack.
