Snacks. You know you love them. As a kid you get snacks as treats. As an adult you take breaks for snacks. And if you’re an average American, 30% of your calories come from snacks, and are EMPTY OF NUTRITION.

Harvard School of Public Health has for years provided their own version of food guidelines, mirroring the USDA’s, but minus industry influence.
