Women Who Snack Are Choosing Healthier Options, Survey Finds

November 11, 2010: 03:19 PM EST

More than 25 percent of women want healthier snacks that also taste good and satisfy their sweet tooth, an online survey has found. And when women proactively seek healthier snacks, 41 percent choose a snack under 100 calories, 36 percent select a low-fat snack and 33 percent pick "whole grain anything." The study, which was conducted on behalf of Dole Food Company, also revealed that nearly 60 percent of women reached for fruit or dried fruit when choosing a healthier snack. Forty-three percent prefer yogurt and 31 percent choose something with whole grains. However, 39 percent of women admitted grabbing candy when they feel like having something sweet. But candy bars only temporarily satisfy sugar cravings. Sweet natural fruit satisfies cravings but doesn’t over-stimulate taste buds to make you want more.
