Figuring out ways to eat healthily and creatively each meal is only half of the battle. Once your meals are as nutritious and tasty as they can get, it may still be difficult to actually remain healthy. When it comes to snacking, so many things can hinder progress: too much sugar, too much sodium, little to no nutritional value. But at these places, offering a variety of healthy snacks (with the occasional treat here and there) puts the ease into eating between meals.
