Bianca’s Nutrition Tips:

  1. Eat natural fruits instead of snacks with refined sugars.

Natural fruits contain “vitamins,” “minerals,” “fiber,” that “help[s] prevent disease[s]”.

Snacks with refined sugar “add calories and sugar with little nutritional value”.

2. Drizzle your snacks with honey instead of refined sugar.

According to Healthline, honey is a “healthier alternative to sugar“.

For diabetics, avoid honey as it still “raises one’s blood sugar levels”.
