Sep 14, 2015 04:35AM ● Published by Flint Zerangue, Sr.

(Family Features) When you’re snacking, it can be tempting to skip the fuss and grab a bite on-the-go. Keeping healthy and convenient snacks at the ready helps you stay disciplined without sacrificing taste and enjoyment.

These three-step healthy snack ideas show how easy it can be to serve up a variety of tasty treats in just a few minutes while adding more fruit to your diet. Make the most of your snacking experience with this advice:

  • Stock the pantry with versatile options that let you prepare a range of snacks, from sweet to savory combinations. Choose options such as DOLE Jarred Fruit, which offers delicious, ready-to-eat fruit in five varieties that are fat-free, cholesterol-free and packed in 100 percent juice for maximum healthy snacking versatility.
  • Look for quick solutions that help trim prep time and skip the cutting, peeling and mess.
  • Avoid worrying about waste or spoilage with convenient, re-sealable lids that let you use what you need for a single serving and save the rest for later.
