February is known to be the National Snack Month. I guess primarily because snack food consumption was low during this time of the month. Well was it a co-incidence that February is also the month of Superbowl eh? The Snack Food Association came up with this idea in 1989
to increase consumption and build awareness of snacks during a month when snack food consumption was traditionally low. The result has been a substantial increase in snack food sales during this month. The promotion kicks off on Super Bowl Sunday and publicity is generated throughout the month of February.
This February let’s promote real food & healthy snacking, instead of giving into the junk options. Eat more fresh fruits, eat more veggies. For healthy snack ideas, click here
